This tartan was designed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the foundation of the
Cercle de Fermieres of Saint-Elie d'Orford at the suggestion of the designer, Claire Villeneuve-Gagnon.
Members chose the colours that would be used. A sample was created and presented at the December 2009
meeting of the Cercle and was accepted by the members of the Cercle de Saint-Elie d'Orford.
The colours are:
denim blue is used to participate in conserving Quebec's textile heritage;
green represents the Group's ecological and recycling concerns;
raspberry red represents friendship between members of the Cercle;
yellow represents the blossoming of the Group's knowledge.
** If you intend to weave or otherwise use any of these patterns, please be aware that you may need
the written permission of the designer or producer. This information can be found in the Scottish Register of Tartans.
