We are now pseudo scottish!

Victoria now has its own official state tartan! Its blue with lines of pink, white and green. The Victorian tartan is registered with the Scottish Tartans World Register. And I quote

“It has blue for the colours on the coat of arms and the Eureka flag, five white lines for the stars of the Southern Cross, green denoting the olive branch on the coat of arms and pink for the floral emblem, the common heath.”

I wonder how much money the state spent on this?
I wonder, can anyone just buy it now and wear it?
