The design draws on various sources of inspiraton. The white line on blue field draws upon Scotland’s national colours, while the green reflects the lichens growing on the stones of Whithorn in Galloway. It was there that Ninian first brought the gospel of Jesus Christ to Scottish shores more than 1,600 years ago. The white lines are also accompanied by a pair of red lines, reflecting the colours of Cardinal John Newman’s crest. And finally, the thin yellow lines in the tartan, together with the white, reflect the colours of the Vatican. In terms of the weaving, each white line on the green contains exactly eight threads, one for each Catholic diocese in Scotland. There are 452 threads in the design from pivot to pivot, representing the number of Catholic parishes.
