Manitoba Tartan

Manitoba Tartan

The Manitoba Tartan, approved by the Lord Lyon King at Arms, guardian of Scottish Heraldry, is registered in Scotland as the official tartan of the province. The design received royal assent May 1, 1962. Each colour has its own significance:

  • Dark Red Squares: natural resources of the province
  • Azure Blue Lines: Lord Selkirk, founder of Red River Settlement (Winnipeg)
  • Dark Green Lines: the men and women of many races who have enriched the life of the province
  • Golden Lines: grain and other agricultural products
