Registration notes: The Maine Acadia Tartan was designed to honour and represent the Acadia region of Maine, USA. This region covers a geographic area in eastern Maine that ranges from approximately just north of Machias, Maine, south to Mt Desert Island. This area is so named due to the influx of peoples from the Acadia region of Canada after the relocation of French catholics by the British in 1755. Colours: fir green represents the balsam fir forests that abound in this area; grey blue represents the fog that often shrouds the coastline; black represents the dark, turbulent waters of the North Atlantic; and yellow represents the sun's morning rays that first touch the United States in this region. This tartan may be worn by anyone with an affinity for the design and/or Maine's Acadia region and its people.
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.
