The World Peace Tartan was designed in 2011 by Victor Spence. Tartan, being one of the world's most recognizable cultural icons, is being used to draw us together with its stories and remind us that we are interconnected. It is through this realization that the World Peace Tartan will help foster a desire for a harmonious future.
