NARRATIVE ON THE PRINT:
Star-Spangled Banner (Flag of 1814) - TARTAN #13214 - Registered at the Scottish Register of Tartans on 'INDEPENDENCE DAY' 4th July 2021 (The 245th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence of the United States, 1776).
The tartan was designed to pay tribute to the Star-Spangled Banner - the historic US flag carried during the War of 1812, and the same 'Great Garrison Flag' that flew over Fort McHenry during the harbor Battle of Baltimore, Sept 13th 1814.
British warships pounded the American fort for 25 hours sending a bombardment of shells and rockets. After the battle in the early dawn of Sept 14th, seeing the flag still flying, Francis Scott Key was stirred to write the poem 'Defense of Fort M'Henry'. The poem not only inspired the name of the flag but also became the lyrics of the national anthem of the US. The sett is created to visually represent the Stars and Stripes ( the red, white & blue of the flag ), and the explosive drama of the battle. The thread count of the design incorporates the past and present : 15 blue threads & 15 red threads represent the 15 stars & 15 stripes of the Star-Spangled Banner; 13 threads in the broad red and white stripes, and 50 threads in the dark blue field represent the present - day US Flag.
