Registration notes: Moves began in 1963 to adopt a tartan for Bruce County in Ontario and permission was sought from the Chief of Clan Bruce to use a colour variation of the Bruce sett.

Scottish Tartans Society notes that this tartan was developed for the centenary of Bruce county in 1967.

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.
