Cally Tartan Poll

posted 2 May 2018, 08:23 by Odd Henrik Brembo   [ updated 16 Mar 2019, 08:52 ]

The Caledonian Society of Norway has never had its own tartan. Therefore we have designed a tartan that will be named The Cally Tartan and will be registered at The Scottish Register of Tartans. We have 4 colour options, and we need the members help to decide which colour option that will be the main version. This version will be used to represent the Society and will be used for decorations, website, kilts and so on.
The other 3 colours will also be registered and available for the members, but will not be used by the Society.

Go to the Cally Tartan Poll to place your vote here>>
You can see the colour versions in detail by klicking the pictures below:

Cally Red
Cally Red: The colours are inspired from the Sinclair Tartan. We added two gold stripes that represents the British and Norwegian Monarchies.

Cally Muted
Cally Muted: This is a muted version of the Cally Red. The colours are more earthy and orange.

Cally Blue
Cally Blue: We have basically switched the red and the blue from the Cally Red tartan.

Cally Hunting
Cally Hunting: We have switched the blue and green colours from The Cally Blue tartan.

The colours in these versions are the same colours. The Red represents the brotherhood in the Society. The blue represents the Sea between Scotland and Norway. The green represent the glens of Scotland and the Norwegian forest. The White represent that we are a Gentlemens Society, and the golden/yellow colour represents the British and the Norwegian Monarchies. The muted version is off course muted, but the colours represents the same as the other versions.

Dear members and friends,

Let me start this summer letter by asking you to reserve your places for the meetings coming up this autumn. If you do it before the holidays, you’ll have something to look forward to when you come back! For your information, we’ve changed some of the dates this autumn so this is a good opportunity to make sure you don’t miss a meeting. The dates are as follows: -

On behalf of the entire committee, I would like to wish you and your families a warm and peaceful summer. Thank you for your participation this season, I hope you have enjoyed the meetings and, most importantly, the company of fellow members and guests. The most important element of The Cally is said to be the social side, to chat and joke amongst like-minded friends. With this in mind, we hope to see you again in the future events.

May you all have a very good summer.

Yours Aye,

Dr. Ian McIntyre
Hon. President
