In 1997, the Lethbridge Handicraft Guild wove placemats with the tartans of each province and territory. This gave Guild members the idea that Lethbridge should have its own tartan. They went before City Council in October 1998, and received approval for the project shortly thereafter.

Guild members wanted to use the colours of the City Crest as inspiration.

Green represents the trees and grass,
Gold the ripe harvest fields, red the R.C.M.P. and its history,
White is for the snow,
Yellow is for the sun and the canola fields,
Light blue represents the blue skies,
Steel blue the mountains,
Black the coal mining and
Pink represents the Alberta rose.


** 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.
