THOUSAND ISLANDS



DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designed by Ms Emily Post, who was a summer resident on Grindstone Island. It was registered in the CIDD in 1978 and is now also held by the Thousand Islands Museum of Clayton, New York.

Ms. Post designed this tartan to represent the islands in the same way that Ms Cobb had pictured the St. Lawrence in her tartan.

Light blue represents the blue skies and the grey granite of the islands.
Dark blue represents the river,
Green for the trees and
Orange for the beautiful rainbows visible from the islands.

[Yes, this is a US tartan really, but I include it for geographical completeness. And, yes, it should be strictly be in the Ontario section as the Canadian Thousand Islands are part of that province, not Quebec, but I wanted to keep them with the St Lawrence Tartans.]
