Tartan Details - Lake Ainslie Heritage

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Lake Ainslie Heritage" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 5377
STWR ref: none
Designer: MacMillan, Verna
Tartan date: 01/01/1985
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: This tartan was designed by Verna MacMillan and registered at the Scottish Tartans Society, in Comrie Scotland, in 1985 on the occasion of Cape Breton's Bicentennial. The following was composed in 1985 by Vincent Smith, Allan MacMillan and Verna MacMillan: BLUE for the water, the sky above and the blueberries that grow. WHITE for the cross of St. Andrew, the Barite and the snow. GOLD for the clean sandy beaches and the rising of the sun. RED for the beautiful sunsets which are second to none. GREEN for the mountains, spruce and pine, as proud and tall they stand. And the grass that blows in the wind like waves upon the land. When settlers came from Europe's shores so many years ago, They brought with them a pride and strength that's not seen anymore. They faced the harsh cold winter storms, had many hungry days. They lived by Faith and Fear of God and strict religious ways. This TARTAN, that we weave today, pays tribute to the old, The flag they left, the shores they found, this HERITAGE is told.

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.
