Beaverbrook (District)
  • Notes: Asymmetric. This asymmetric tartan was designed by Miss M Patricia Jenkins MA, founder of the Loomcrofters in Gagetown (Est. 1941), New Brunswick, Canada. Very complicated entry in Lord Lyon book for this sett which was commissioned by Lord Beaverbrook and then adopted by New Brunswick as its district tartan. Its great complication has brought about various confusing simplifications as can be seen from the selection in the full copy of this database. This perfectly matches the woven sample from 1974 in the Johnston Collection. The write-up from Loomcrofters reads: " New Brunswick's three main industries are Lumbering, Agriculture and Fishing. These are represented in the design by the forest green, meadow green and blue interwoven with gold for the province's potential wealth. The red blocks surrounding the green signify the loytalty and devotion to Crown and Country of our Loyalist settlers, the New Brunswick regiments and all our peoples. The block also contains the grey and gold of the provincial Coat of Arms and the Regimental Crest. Because the first weaving of the design was commissioned for Lord Beaverbrook, the province's eminent benefactor, the red blocks are highlighted by 'beaver' brown.
