Obama Family Tartan- Officially Registered

A month after presenting Barak Obama with a Slanj Kilt and a pair of Tartan trousers the Obama Family tartan had been officially added to The Scottish Register of Tartans.

The Obama Family tartan was commissioned by the Hunter Foundation to commemorate the visit of former US President Barack Obama when he flew in to Scotland on 26 May 2017 to play golf at St Andrews.

He went on to speak at a prestigious dinner in Edinburgh and was presented with a kilt and trews made by Slanj Kilts. The red, sky blue and white colours in the tartan are taken from the flag of Chicago where Mr Obama lives and works, navy blue represents the Hawaiian flag where Mr Obama was born and green represents the Kenyan flag to honour Barack Obama Senior’s family roots.
