  • Name of Tartan:
    Cape Breton (yellow stripes) (Dist)
  • ITI Number: 1883
  • Category: Canadian District
  • Designer / Source: Grant, Mrs Elizabeth
  • Date: July 1957
Cape Breton (yellow stripes) (Dist)
  • Notes: Inspired by a poem written in 1907 by a friend Lillian Crewe Walsh of Glace Bay, Cape Breton, Elizabeth Grant of Glace Bay designed this tartan 50 years later incorporating the typical Cape Breton colours described in the poem. Now accepted by the local populace as the district tartan. Sample in STA Dalgety Collection & Johnston Collection. Very similar to MacTavish/Thomson. Possibly a Lord Thomson of Fleet connection? This tartan was first registered in the CIDD in July 1957 to Lillian Walsh and then in 1956 to Elizabeth Grant. (CIDD 026-08-26922) with a marginally different thread count. The evidence suggests that it was definitely Elizabeth Grant who designed it. Further info from John Fitzpatrick's July 2008 review of Canadian tartans. Some versions have been reported where the yellow has been replaced by a grey (#4452).
