CITY OF DORVAL

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designed by the Dorval Weaver's Guild in 2009. It commemorates the Scottish influence on the development of the City and has been approved by the City authorities.

The City of Dorval tartan is based on the history, the geography and the coat of arms of the city.
The yellow/gold border represents the Fort de la Presentation and honours Sieur Bouchard dit d'Orval and all others who contributed to the evolution of Dorval.
The blue reflects the colour of Lake Saint Louis and the Saint Lawrence Seaway. It also illuminates our affiliation with Quebec.
The brown pays tribute to the Amerindians and recalls the bark of their canoes.
The black stands for the transportation system for which Dorval is a hub: airport, railways and highways.
The green evokes the parks and gardens that have replaced the farms of the first settlers and which give Dorval its charm and reputation.
The red shows Dorval's allegiance to Canada.
The white is a reflection of the silver in the coat of arms.

The heart of the tartan's design embodies the City's motto 'Ego Porta Mundi', meaning 'I am the Door of the World'.
