Maple Leaf (District)
  • Notes: Asymmetric. Count taken from Lochcarron woven samples - colours very close. The colours of the maple leaf through the changing seasons became the basis for this asymmetric tartan designed by David Weiser in 1964. Known officially as the Maple Leaf tartan, the pattern incorporates the green of the leaves' summer foliage, the gold which appears in early autumn, the red which appears with the coming of the first frost, and the brown tones of the fallen leaves. Fraser & Kirkbright say (Sept 2002) it was made for Highland Queen Sportswear in anticipation of the centenary of Confederation status in 1867. David Weiser (a Director of Highland Queen) was said to have been in the fashion world for many years. The book "District Tartans" calls for square in middle of large red to be "medium green" but all the production that the late William H.Johnston saw was medium tan with perhaps a tinge of green. The thread count from Lochcarron swatch 2004. Colours very difficult to match exactly. Became Canada's official tartan in 2011
