Utah State Tartan
Utah's state centennial tartan, which honors the first Scots known to have been in Utah and those Utahns of Scottish heritage, shall have a pattern or repeating-half-sett of white-2, blue-6, red-6, blue-4, red-6, green-18, red-6, and white-4 to represent the tartan worn anciently by the Logan and Skene clans, with the addition of a white stripe.
Utah's state emblem of service and sacrifice of lives lost by members of the military in defense of our freedom is the "Honor and Remember" flag, which consists of: (a) a red field covering the top two-thirds of the flag; (b) a white field covering the bottom one-third of the flag, which contains the words "honor" and "remember"; (c) a blue star overlaid by a gold star with a thin white border in the center of the flag spanning the red field and the white field; and (d) a representation of a folded United States flag beneath the blue and gold stars with three tongues of flame emanating from its top point into the center of the gold star.
