CLAN Custom Creations: Fourth Be With You
The Star Wars universe may exist in a galaxy far, far away, but Star Wars was never that far, far away from Scotland! The fourth of May is known worldwide as Star Wars Day, and we wanted to celebrate one of our favourite franchises by designing a tartan to highlight the Scottish connection.
Ian McDiarmid's portrayal of Emperor Palpatine and Ewan McGregor's role as Obi Wan Kenobi are two of the most recognisable characters from the Star Wars franchise. Using our very own tartan designer, we fused the respective family tartans of these two Scottish actors into a unified Fourth Be With You tartan. Since the light and dark side of the Force are interwoven, we wanted the two tartans to symbolise this relationship.
We also incorporated the iconic lightsaber colours of the Sith and Jedi amidst the light and dark squares of the tartan. The red lines across the dark parts of the tartan symbolise the traditional colour of the Sith's weapon of choice, where the assorted colours crossing the lighter portions include some of the common colours for the Jedi lightsabers.
