The tartan was designed by J.A. McIntyre and registered with the STS in July 1993. It was registered with CIPO by the City in 1985.

The colours in the City of Guelph tartan appear in the city official arms and crest. Indeed, the overall design for the City of Guelph tartan comes from the MacRae hunting tartan. Colonel John McCrae, who is honoured through this tartan, was a soldier, a poet, a physician, a native son of Guelph, and famous for having written In Flanders Fields.
