Only the members of the “Guilde des Tisserands du Suroît” of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield are authorized to weave this tartan.


Registration notes: Designed by Line Clavet and Francine Perreault for Salaberry-de-Valleyfield city, south-west in the province of Quebec, on south shore of the St-Lawrence River. The city was founded in 1874 by a population especially formed by the French Canadians and the Scotts (the origin of the name Salaberry-de-Valleyfield). From that period, it went through a large textile economic development. The tartan was inspired by the history of the city, its armorial bearings and its geographic situation. The white represents the French lily flower, symbolising strength, light and wisdom. The blue refers to the Scottish thistle and is a reminder of the water in the territory. Blue also symbolises comprehension. The red is a reminder of the setting sun and is the colour of life and the affirmation of the will. It symbolises action. The green evokes nature, health and youth. It evokes a feeling of comfort and the bond with the nature. The gold illustrates the fields of our city. It is the colour of the sharing, celebration and joy, and symbolises friendship. The black bonds the old and the new, representing modernity and excellence. This tartan will be woven by the members of the “Guilde des Tisserands du Suroît “ of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
