FRIENDS OF NORDEGG

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was commissioned and approved by the Nordegg Intellectual Society in 2010 for use by all those who consider themselves to be 'Friends' of Nordegg.

Nordegg nestles at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, on the North Saskatchewan River in Alberta. It was one of Canada's premier producers of steam coal, which powered the trains that united a nation, and immigrants from all over the world flocked here to live. While the inhabitants may have come from many different countries, the town developed a sub-culture of its own, with its traditions, music, social customs and language.

Colours:

Black represents the coal that men went underground to retrieve;
Green represents the trees that surround and protect the Nordegg area;
Blue represents the rivers and lakes;
Red represents the bloodlines of the families that still return to Nordegg;
Grey represents the Limestone Mountains that define Nordegg's landscape; and
White represents the snow that surrounds the area most of the year.
