TARTANS   OF   CANADA

PREV       BRITISH COLUMBIA       NEXT


CITY OF VICTORIA (1)

DESCRIPTION

The Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) records the designers as Alec & Edith Armstrong of Victoria, whereas the Compendium has Alec & Anfrea Emmons. Both record the date as 1991. There is also a colour difference between the two recorded setts - the tartan depicted is the STA version.

The following note comes from the STA:

   “A rhapsody in colour reminiscent of our atmosphere and heritage
    unique to British Columbia’s capital. The tartan reveals old red
    bricks, granite stone, topped with turquoise oxidsised copper
    domes, accented with ox blood red, combined with hunter green and
    the warmth of Victorian old rose.”
