State Tartan!

I recently learned Rhode Island has a state tartan. It was chosen by the St. Andrews Society of Rhode Island in the year 2000, and officially registered with the Scottish Tartans World Register a short time later. It's a very attractive tartan. Though to tell you the truth, I really like New Hampshire's state tartan better. It has a certain retina scorching joy about it.

New Hampshire's tartan.

Not every state has a tartan. A list of those that do can be found HERE.

What's really amazing is Rhode Island's state bird. It's a chicken! The Rhode Island Red chicken to be exact. Not every state can have a chicken as a state bird!
