La Guilde des Tisserandes de Lachine created two tartans bearing the colours of the City of Lachine. These tartans were registered with the STA on August 30, 2002. Both have been adopted by the city.
The City of Lachine gives the following descriptions of the designs. The colours of the emblematic tartan were inspired by the crest and by the logo used by the city between 1979 and 2001. Black, red and yellow stripes replicate the braided border of the crest and represent the harmony between different nationalities. The center squares represent the leaf and the drop of water present on the logo. The colours are:
Black, which surrounds the belt. It is mysterious, filled with dignity and strength. It represents the union of the English (the rose), the French (the fleur de lys), the Scottish (the thistle), the Irish (the clover) and the Canadians (the maple leaf);
Red is the colour of our motto;
Yellow symbolizes the happiness and joie de vivre brought to the continent by its colonizing countries;
White for clarity, triumph and peace;
Blue is the colour of water, symbolizing the advantageous geographical position of Lachine;
and Green for the colour of leaves, symbolizing the vegetation and the numerous parks that beautify our city.
** 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.
