This tartan was designed to celebrate the centennial of the Nickel Lodge in 1991. It was registered in May 1989. The Nickel Lodge is one of the oldest masonic lodges in Ontario, and is based in Sudbury.

The tartan was designed by one of the lodge members, F. G. MacLeod. The colours are symbolic:

gold for the centennial,
grey for nickel,
green and brown to represent the fields and forests,
blue for masonry and the many lakes and rivers of the area, and
white to represent purity and the winter snows.


** If you intend to weave or otherwise use any of these patterns, please be aware that you may need the written permission of the designer or producer. This information can be found in the Scottish Register of Tartans.
