TARTANS   OF   CANADA

LANARK HIGHLANDS

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designeed by Susi Reinink for the Township of Lanark Highlands as one of the town’s millennium projects. It was registered with the Scottish Tartans Society on the 20th November 1999.

The colours in the sett follow this symbolism:

The fields of agricultural land (brown), dependent on the township’s many lakes and streams (dark blue), are surrounded by maple forests (green). Their foliage turns into bright autumn colours (red and yellow) by October. Soon winter sets in and the lakes start to freeze over (light blue). Finally snow (white) covers the township, so that the granite (grey) of the Great Canadian Shield is only occasionally exposed.
