STEPHEN - MATHIESON



DESCRIPTION

This tartan was designed in 2009 by Peter Finch of Vancouver, British Columbia.

The colours are intended to reflect the ancient hunting Matheson tartan, with the pattern suggesting elements of both the Gordon and the Matheson tartans.

Interpretation of the colours:

Green for 'greener pastures' and Blue for the sea. The family is said to have arrived in Scotland seeking a better life, and later made other sea voyages all over the world in search of the the same outcome.
The black is a reference to family occupations: farmers, railroaders, blacksmiths.
The purple (heather) ribbon represents the family's Scottish roots and recalls Rachael Walters, whose favourite colour was purple and who touched many people in her short life.
