|The colours of the Newfoundland tartan are related to the
'Ode to Newfoundland', the second anthem of the province.
Gold for the sun, green for the pine clad hill, white for the
snow, brown for the minerals under the earth and red to
denote her British origins. In 1972, the Minute of
Provincial Affairs of the Province petitioned the Lord Lyon
to record the tartan in the Writs section of the Lyon Court
Books. This was done on the 3rd of September, 1973.
