Registration notes: A dress version of the Highlands of Haliburton tartan, to commemorate the tartan's 50th anniversary. The Highlands of Haliburton Dress tartan is based on the original design from 1963 for the Highlands of Haliburton District Tartan (STR #1571, STA #147). Originally commissioned by the Haliburton County Chamber of Commerce in 1963. The colours of the tartan were chosen to represent the green of the forests; blue of the lakes; white for both the snow and the provincial flower, the Trillium; the red and gold for the splendour of the fall colours; brown for the earth and the work of the early pioneers.
