Quebec, Plaid du (District)
  • Notes: Asymmetric. Registered by Rotex Ltd on 7th April 1965. The Scottish Tartans Society received a sample from A.C.Lumsden which is slightly different. (The black and the dark blue are almost indistinguishable). The tartan is not registered with Lord Lyon but is said to have been 'patented' in 1965 but is still referred to as the 'unofficial'. The other Quebec variants (3133, 3134 & 3135) differ in varying degrees from this alleged 'official' version. The French speaking province of Quebec is Canada's largest province and its name comes from the Algonquin Indian 'Kebe' meaning 'the place where the river narrows' which referred to the narrowing of the St. Lawrence River near what is now Qu?bec City. Scottish immigrants first settled in Quebec over 400 years ago and are regarded as one of the founding peoples of the province. Although the Quebec tartan has never been officially adopted, the concept of an annual Tartan Day on April 6th has, so perhaps it's only a matter of time. The structure and colours of the tartan are based on the three horizontal divisions of the provincial shield. Woven sample in Johnston Collection.
