This tartan was designed in 1961 by Mrs Lillian Michaelis Bastedo, wife of the Province’s Lieutenant-Governor, and was recorded in the Lord Lyon Book as LCB13 on 6th October 1961, however the threadcount there shows some odd numbers of threads. Both Saskatchewan tartans are officially recognized.

The tartan has seven colours -

the predominant gold representing the golden ripe prairie wheat;
brown for the summer fallow;
green for the forests;
red for the provincial flower, the Western prairie lily;
yellow for rapeseed flower and sun flower;
white for the snow; and
black for oil and coal.


** If you intend to weave or otherwise use any of these patterns, please be aware that you may need the written permission of the designer or producer. This information can be found in the Scottish Register of Tartans.
