"The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine The Maple Leaf forever!" ~Alexander Muir, The Maple Leaf Forever

Designed by Arthur Bottomly for Peter MacArthur & Co, Hamilton, Scotland, to mark the 100th Anniversary of the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867, this tartan was approved by the Centennial Commission. The six colours represent the wealth of Canada in its natural resources and the red and white from the national flag.

Happy Canada Day!
