Registration notes: Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick and this tartan was designed by the 'Loomcrofters' - the home weavers of the Fredericton area. This thread count is from Gordon Teal's 'District Tartans' book. Sample in Scottish Tartans Society Johnston Collection. This appears to be the original design which was later modified by reducing the white and red and increasing one of the azure strips - see #95 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference). Green is for the Scottish Tartans Society;Gold for the Royal Prince (Prince Frederick, second son of George II);Red, white and blue from the Union Jack. Intended as a dress tartan 'the white block is centred by the Cathedral Cross in the Bishop's colour purple and then outlined in blue for the river that flows through Fredericton.'

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
