  • Celtic release new Tartan to celebrate 130th anniversary

    Celtic release new Tartan to celebrate 130th anniversary

    By: Newsroom Staff on 10 Oct, 2018 14:31

  • CELTIC have teamed up with Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers of Edinburgh to design a new tartan to celebrate their 130th anniversary. The official launch of the new tartan took place at Lennoxtown today with Celtic skipper, Scott Brown.

    The historic anniversary refers to the formation of Celtic Football Club in the East End of Glasgow, a Scottish Club with proud Irish roots, open to all. The foundations of the club remain to 'strive for excellence in Scotland and in Europe' while taking pride in its rich history. 

    Commissioning a new tartan, a national symbol of Scottish heritage, is fitting to commemorate the important role Celtic has played as an iconic team in Scotland’s history.  

    Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers was awarded this commission based on their prestigious tartan design. Last year, Gordon Nicolson also designed the official tartan for the Scotland national football team.

    The new Celtic FC tartan design pays homage to the past and aims to symbolise a new era.

    “We are honoured to design a new tartan to celebrate the accomplishments of such an iconic football club,” said Gordon Nicolson. “Like us, Celtic takes pride in preserving their heritage and always aims to be the best it can be in Scotland and beyond.” 

    The new tartan will be woven locally by House of Edgar in Scotland. House of Edgar are renowned as one of the remaining authentic Scottish weavers of tartan. 

    The new range of Celtic FC tartan products and kilt hire will be available exclusively to Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers (nicolsonkiltmakers.com).
