The tartan was designed by the Niagara Regional Police Pipe Band in 2006, initially just for the band. However, the idea of a district tartan was presented to the Regional Council who unanimously accepted it.
The colours, taken from the Regional Coat of Arms and Niagara Regional Police crest, represent the Niagara region.
Dark Blue represents the vast waters of the two great lakes, Erie and Ontario, and
Light Blue signifies the Niagara River and the Welland Canal, traversing the region adjoining the Great Lakes.
White represents the mighty Niagara Falls, its voluminous rising mists and raging white water rapids.
Green symbolizes the fertile, rich and vibrant agriculture of our region, the world-renowned parks and recreational areas.
** 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.
