This tartan was designed by Ann Woollings and Odette Catt and named the Northern Ontario tartan. It was registered with CIPO in 1959.

The tartan was designed to represent the colours of the region:

Grey represents the local rocks from which nickel and iron were mined,
White for the snow,
Yellow for the local gold and sunshire,
Green for the forests and fields,
Blue for the lakes and rivers, and
Red to represent the First Nations.


** 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.
