This tartan was designed by Patricia Jenkins of Loomcrofters and was registered in 1961, but there have been two variations since. The first from a sample sent by the Loomcrofters to the Scottish Tartans Society in 1987, the second is recorded in the Compendium as being STA No. 4938 which is no longer available in the STA index.

The Green Block: Green is for the forests from which Fredericton was carved and for the trees which line her streets; Gold for Prince Frederick, Duke of York and second son of George III; and red, white and blue from the Union Jack. The arrangement of the blue and white in the outer corners indicate the symmetry of the street plan in the heart of the City.

The background is white, as this is a dress tartan, and it is centred by the Cathedral Cross in the Bishop’s colour purple and then outlined in blue of the river. Unifying the two main blocks is Red for loyalty to Crown and Country and of New Brunswick University. The colours of the seasons and the purple of the provincial flower, the violet are also represented.
