Tartan Details - Saltcoats (Saskatchewan)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Saltcoats (Saskatchewan)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 7822
STWR ref: 3157
Designer: Joan Farquharson for Saltcoats (Saskatchewan) Town Council
Tartan date: 24/06/2006
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: This tartan was created to express appreciation for the rich Scottish heritage but also the multi-ethnic roots of Saltcoats, Saskatchewan, past and present. In the 1880s the town was originally named Stirling, hence the grey in the pattern representing both the stone of Stirling Castle and homespun for the ordinary folk who peopled the area. The other colours are to represent the seasons and the flora and fauna: green for the prairie grasses and trees, yellow for the grain and fields of canola, red for the courage of the pioneers and those of the services, light blue for the wide prairie sky, dark blue for the loyalty and faithfulness of the churches and organizations that have lived out years of community service and stewardship, white for the snows of winter. Originally the design had black in it for the rich black soils found in the area but to keep the number of colours to six it was substituted with dark blue in the final weave.

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.
