TARTANS   OF   CANADA

NATIONAL       NEXT


MAPLE LEAF

DESCRIPTION

This asymmetric tartan was designed by David Weiser in 1964 possibly in anticipation of the centenary of Canada’s Confederation in 1967. It was adopted officially as the tartan of Canada in 2011.

The tartan captures the natural process of the Maple leaves turning from green in the early summer, to gold at the turn of autumn, and then red at the first frost. The tones of brown created at the intersections in the tartan mirror the shades of leaf colour at Fall.
