Registration notes: Oromocto in New Brunswick is known as CANADA'S MODEL TOWN, a progressive and prosperous community developed around Canada's Canadian Forces Base Gagetown; one of the largest military training bases in the Commonwealth. Oromocto is also known as a community that is deeply rooted with a very diverse culture and heritage. With a population of about 9,000, it is nestled along the Oromocto and Saint John Rivers. This tartan was designed in the 1970s by Mis M Patricia Jenkins, owener of the Loomcrofters of Gagetown and the significance of the colours is as follows: blue and white represent the Oromocto and St John rivers which were used by the Indian people and the early settlers. The red and gold symbolise the British and military influence. The brown represents the early logging and shipbuilding industries and the black denotes the early military history and the first families to settle in the area. Oromocto was originally used by the Indians as a camping and burial ground and the name's origin was the Indian word wel-a-mook-took. Its meaning has several versions but the most commonly known are deep river or good river for navigation by canoe.

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.
