Well, they remembered to place the St George's day logo for England again today. They obviously don't consider Scotland to be as important as England, Wales or Ireland. Perhaps they, like a few of the less informed Americans I have met, think that Scotland is a county in England :(
England, UK. :)

I thnk you are missing the point. Tartan day is not a Scottish event. It is a US event held in New York that celebrates the USA's links to Scotland and its Scottish heritage.
The reason people dress up in highland dress is that it's tartan day. Get it? ;)
There is no need to get embarrassed, that's what it's all about. Incidentally it is only because you are a Scot that you get embarrased. People outside of Scotland don't see it this way.
