Beautiful BC

Happy B.C. Day Long Weekend! Do you recognize this tartan?

.

.

This is B.C.’s official tartan, designed by Victoria’s Earl K. Ward in 1967 and officially adopted by the province in 1974. Each colour in the tartan represents a signature aspect of British Columbia:

i. White is for our official flower: the Pacific Dogwood

ii. Green is for our vast B.C. forests.

iii. Blue is for the Pacific Ocean

iv. Red is for the Canadian maple leaf

v. Gold is for the sun we so appreciate when it arrives and the crown in the B.C. flag.

.

Our other BC provincial symbols include:

Fish
Pacific Salmon

Gemstone
Jade

Mammal
The white-coated Spirit or Kermode Bear

Tree
Western Red Cedar
