Registration date: 24 February 2017
Category: District
Restrictions: Yes. May only be worn/used by those authorised by the copyright holders.

Registration notes: Lying in Northumberland County on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Canada, the "Feel good" town of Cobourg's civic hall - named after his mother Queen Victoria - was opened in 1860 by Edward VII when Prince of Wales. To link with that event, the Cobourg tartan is inspired by the 1853 Balmoral tartan designed by Victoria's husband Prince Albert. Teamed with that classic design is a distinctive element from the Northumberland Check - a simple shepherd's plaid that has enjoyed cross-border popularity in Scotland for very many centuries. The colours are from Cobourg's town logo.
