This tartan was designed by Peter Hanly of Kingston Ontario in 2009. The surname Hanly is from the Gaelic O'hAinle and has its roots in Ireland. Coming from Canada, and thus having no real connection to County Roscommon, Ireland (the area of Ireland where the name Hanly originates) Peter Hanly decided to create a family tartan with colours based on the Hanly family coat of arms which is a green shield with a silver boar passant, between two silver arrows barways, the hooves, mane and arrowheads being of gold. Three generations of the family served in the military (British Army, Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Airforce) and the designer incorporated the thin stripes from the RCAF tartan.
