Tartan Details - Friends of Nordegg

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Friends of Nordegg" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10288
Designer: Nordegg Intellectual Society
Tartan date: 12/06/2010
Registration date: 6 October 2010
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: This tartan has been commissioned and approved by the Nordegg Intellectual Society for use by all those who consider themselves to be ‘Friends’ of Nordegg. Nordegg nestles at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, on the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta. It was one of Canada’s premier producers of steam coal, which powered the trains that united a nation and immigrants from all over the world flocked here to live. While the inhabitants may have come from many different countries, the town developed a sub-culture of its own, with its traditions, music, social customs and language. Colours: Black represents the coal that men went underground to retrieve; Green represents the trees that surround and protect the Nordegg area; Blue represents the rivers and lakes; Red represents the bloodlines of the families that still return to Nordegg; Grey represents the Limestone Mountains that define Nordegg's landscape; and White represents the snow that surrounds the area most of the year.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
