BRUCE COUNTY

DESCRIPTION

Moves to create this tartan began in 1962 and was subsequently was developed by committee, possibly for the Centennial celebrations of Bruce County in 1967. The committee approached the Chief of the Clan Bruce, the Earl of Elgin and Kincardine, to vary the colour of the Bruce sett. Lord Bruce, the Chief’s son, agreed and suggested that a blue guard be added on either side of the white stripe, symbolising Lake Huron and the area's streams.

The tartan was registered in the Lyon Court Books on the 19th January 1965 (some sources give the date as June 1964) and later approved by the County Council at a formal ceremony on the 10th July 1965.
