ENSIGN OF ONTARIO

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was registered by CIPO to Rotex in Aprll 1965, but a similar tartan (ITI No. 2032) is said to have been designed by Elsie Gillespie. Until the creation in 2000 of the Provincial tartan it was regarded as the Ontario tartan.

The design of the tartan was inspired by the Provincial Coat of Arms.

The yellow represents the three maple leaves which appear on the green background of the coat of arms and
the red from the Cross of St. George on the upper part.
The black represents the bear which appears at the top of the shield.
The brown is the colour-combination created by the moose on the left and the deer on the right of the shield.
