The Nova Scotia tartan is a predominantly light blue and blue tartan with green and white. Tartan has long been a distinctive design of Scottish Highland clans. Affection for tartan cloth crossed the Atlantic first with Scottish regiments, who served garrison duty in Canada before Confederation, and later with the Scottish immigrants who settled in the Maritimes and United Canada. District tartans reflect geographical areas and are the most relevant in Canada today. They link land and community through symbolic and imaginative use of colour. Caribou, Nova Scotia has chosen a tartan that features the colour red, symbolic of its sunsets, lobsters and fire trucks.
