  • Notes: In 1497 John Cabot called this Atlantic province the 'new founde isle' and just a few years later official English documents called it 'New found lande.' There are two names connected with the official provincial tartan, one is Louis Anderson, recorded in old records as the designer and then there is a St. Johns clothing store owner Sam Wilansky mostly referred to as the developer to whom the tartan was registered in the CIDD in January 1960. Gold represents the sun's rays, green the pine clad hills, white for the snow, brown for the minerals in the Province and red to commemorate the Royal Standard of her British origins. In 1972, the Minute of Provincial Affairs of the Province petitioned the Lord Lyon to record the tartan in the Writs section of the Lyon Court Books. This was done on the 3rd of September, 1973. Sample in STA Johnston Collection. July 2008. Count altered slightly here and there to accord with that in the CIDD.
