Registration notes: This tartan represents Canmore's Scottish roots, namely King Malcolm Ceann Mor and the Scots who worked the Canadian Pacific Railway and settled in the area. Each colour represents as aspect of life in Canmore: green for the evergreen forests, blue and yellow for the sunny Alberta skies, black for the coal mines, white for winter's snow capped peaks and fuschia for the mountain heathers and wildflowers. The colours were chosen to be both regional and historical. The Canmore Highland Games tartan has been adopted as the town's official Scottish colours. The Canmore Highland Games began in 1991 and are held annually on the Sunday of Labour Day weekend.
