Scottish Tartans World Register: Cape Breton 
Cape Breton District Tartan  WR1883



In 1907, Mrs Lillian Crewe Walsh of Glace Bay, Cape Breton, wrote a poem in praise of Cape Breton. This poem was given by Mrs Walsh to Mrs Grant in 1957 and the tartan designed to accord with the poem. Grey for our Cape Breton Steel, Green for our lofty mountains, our valleys and our fields; Gold for the Golden Sunsets, Shining bright on the lakes of Bras d'Or, To show us God's hand has lingered, To bless Cape Breton's shores. (Source: District Tartans, P Smith and G Teall, 1992)
