Glasgow Games tartan to be designed by pupils


The organisers of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games have launched a competition that will see the event’s official tartan – possibly used in branding, merchandise and ceremonies – designed by Scottish pupils.

With the deadline for entries set at June 17th, schools do not have long to register on the Glasgow 2014 Tartan Design Competition website. 

The tartans can be designed via an online ‘tartan generator’ on the site and each school is only permitted to submit one final design. 

John Scott, Chief Executive of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games said:

“We’re really looking forward to seeing the entries and ideas that are generated from the competition.”
