CWI is the first women's group in the USA to have its own tartan, designed by Marjorie
Warren of Thistle Studios and Lochcarran. It registered with the Scottish Tartan Authority.
The underlying background colors of the tartan are lavender and black, the colors of
Celtic Women International. Four other colors are taken from the flags of the seven
Celtic nations: Brittany, Cornwall, Galicia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Scotland and Wales -
red, white, green and blue.
Traditionally red symbolizes courages and passion. White represents purity of intention
and action. Green bespeaks vitality and growth. Blue stands for serenity and quiet
strength. Blending the colors of our diverse nations and heritages creates a new and rich
pattern that represents bringing together the women of the seven nations to create a new
and significant global body - Celtic Women International.
