CANADIAN CENTENNIAL

DESCRIPTION

The Scottish Tartans Authority note that this tartan was designed by Arthur Bottomly of MacArthurís of Hamilton (since 2002, Biggarís of Hamilton) in Scotland to mark the nationís centenary in 1967, and that it was the only tartan to receive the formal approval of the Centennial Commission. However, it was registered in August of 1966 with CIPO by Harold and Henry Weller, trading as Centennial Tartan.

The blue, green, yellow and black are said to mark Canadaís natural resources, while the red and white represent the national flag.
