Registration notes: The Montreal 1642 tartan is a gift to the City and citizens of Montreal on the 375th anniversary of its founding. The 1642 tartan represents Scots and the city's civic and military organisations. The design uses colours which represent the founding peoples of Montreal; white and blue represent the St Andrew's flag of the Scots; green represents the Irish, red represents the St. George's cross of the English and the French are represented by the blue of St. Jean and the white of the Fleur de Lys. The interlocking shades of the tartan express the peaceful integration of these original founding peoples with those of other nations and cultures from around the world.
