  • Notes: Named after Princess Louise, the Duchess of Argyle (1848 - 1939), Queen Victoria's fourth daughter who served as Canadian Vice Regal Consort when her husband was Governor General of Canada. Her other two names were Caroline Alberta - the latter no doubt after her father Prince Albert. One of Canada's three prairie provinces, Alberta's tartan was designed by Alizon Lamb and Ella Neilsen, two ladies from the Edmonton Rehabilitation Society - a voluntary agency providing work for handicapped students learning to operate handlooms. Adopted by the Provincial Legislature on March 30th 1961, the green represents the forests; the gold is for the wheat and sunshine; the blue is for the lakes and skies; the black for the oil and coal and the pink for wild rose - the Provincial emblem. Alizon Lamb was the Society's Exec. Director and Ella Neilsen was its weaving instructor. The count in the CIDD is Y/16 K4 B8 K4 CORAL4 K4 G/48
