This tartan was designed by Kinloch Anderson in 2010 and it reflects both the colours of Nova Scotia and the heritage of this branch of the Anstey family.

The blue is symbolic of the sea, rivers and lakes, and the greens of the forests while the white reflects the winter's snow. The red and gold are for the autumn colours.

The pattern derives elements from their Scottish heritage (Young), with the blue and white from the Nova Scotia provincial colours and red and white for Canada. The Kelly green symbolises Ireland and Irish heritage while the forest green and gold stand for their First Nations ancestry. A New World fusion shown with Old Scottish pride.
