Islamic tartan unveiled in Scotland


And I'll be in Makkah afore ye...

One would have to ask a MacDonald or a Stewart or a MacPhail or a Campbell how they felt about this.

This would be due to what many would argue that only a true Scotsman's opinion would count in this particular situation.

As reported by the United Kingdom Press Association, an Islamic-inspired tartan will soon be presented to the public in the land of whiskey and golf.

According to Glaswegian Dr. Azeem Ibrahim, he contacted both Islamic experts and Scottish tartan designers to come up with his first ever melding of the two cultures.

Doctor Ibrahim stated he intended his design to "weave the diverse Muslim identity into the fabric of Scotland."

The tartan consists of the following:

    Blue for the Saltire (the Cross of St. Andrew, the traditional symbol of Scotland).

    Green for the color of Islam.

    White lines for the five pillars of Islam.

    Six gold lines for the articles of faith.

    A black square pattern representing the Kaa'ba (the holiest shrine in Islam. Considered to be "the navel of the world" in which the entire universe rotates.)
