Registration notes: Named after Princess Louise, the Duchess of Argyle (1848-1939), Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, who served as Canadian Vice Regal Consort when her husband was Governor General of Canada. One of Canada's three prairie provinces, Alberta's tartan was designed by Alison Lamb and Ellen Neilsen, two ladies from the Edmonton Rehabilitation Society - a voluntary agency providing work for handicapped students learning to operate handlooms. Adopted by the Provincial Legislature in March 1961, the green represents the forests; the gold is for the wheat and sunshine; the blue is for the lakes and skies; the black for the oil and coal and the pink for wild rose - the Provincial emblem. Alison Lamb was the Society's Executive Director and Ellen Neilsen was its weaving instructor.

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.
