Edinburgh-based newspaper The Scotsman reports that the created by tartan designer Brian Talley of Glasgow, who chose colors to represent Obama’s life. The navy blue of the pattern represents the flag of Hawaii, while green represents the Kenyan flag. The red, sky blue, and white represent Chicago.
When the former president was presented with a kilt and trousers in the pattern recently on his first visit to Scotland, he said that his legs wouldn’t look good in a kilt, but the trousers “look pretty good. So I might try some.”
