HOGEBOOM

DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designed by A.L. Carol Martin in 2012 at a family reunion for the designer's family with memories from their childhood home in the Gardeners' House on Sheppard Avenue West in Willowdale, Ontario. The family surname 'Hogeboom' is Dutch in origin and translates as "high tree".

Colours:

Green is for the grass in their large backyard and the surrounding forest;
The blues are for the sky and nearby Don River;
Yellow is for the pear trees, pansy flowers and the sunshine;
Purple is for the plum trees and Concord grape vine;
Magenta is for the rhubarb and the beautiful fruit-tree blossoms in spring;
Red is for the abundant apples and cherries and the warmth of home and love in the family.

The double lines in this design represent the "H" of Hogeboom and Home.
