STA ref: 5814
STWR ref: none
Designer: Stafford, David
Tartan date: 01/10/2002

Registration notes: Designed by David Stafford of the St Andrew's Presbyterian Church which was founded by the 78th Fraser Highlanders following the British victory on the Plains of Abraham in 1759. The congregation is the oldest one of Scottish origin in Canada. As such and in light of their continuing support of Scottish heritage and culture, they have submitted this design. Rev Brad Nelson was Pastor at this time and Gina Farnell was the Clerk of Session. The golden yellow is for 'our past, present & future members'. Blue for the Presbyterian Church and St Andrew's Cross. Green 'our verdant surrounding hills'. Orange - 'predominant colour in the Fraser taran of our founders'. Red is for Canada. White for the snow that 'characterises our Nordic winters'.

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.
