TARTANS   OF   CANADA

PREV       NOVA SCOTIA                 


YARMOUTH

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designed by Sliomas Gillis in June 1963 and produced by his company, the Thistle Knitwear Company. Since then Michael & Frances Morris of "At the Sign of the Whale" have acquired the rights from the late designer's daughters.

The following poem was written by Sol Gilis at the time the tartan was originally launched.

    Where lupines trail the winding roads
    And hills are crowned with trees,
    Their iron men in wooden ships
    Did roam the seven seas.
    Where fishing fleets are sailing by
    The Lighthouse and the Bar,
    To spread the bait in silvery nets
    In waters near and far.
    Where lakes do kiss the wooded shores
    And deer the forest roam,
    There is Yarmouth, Nova Scotia,
    The place I call my home.
