Newfoundland Tartan: Threadcount recorded by the Minister of Provincial Affairs in the Lyon Court Books (writs section), 27, 6 December 1973. In 1497 John Cabot called this Atlantic province the ‘new founde isle’ and just a few years later official English documents called it ‘New found lande.’ There are two names connected with the official provincial tartan, one is Louis Anderson, recorded in old records as the designer and Sam Wilansky, a St Johns clothing store owner, usually referred to as the developer. Colours: gold represents the sun’s rays; green represents the pine clad hills; white for the snow; brown for the minerals in the Province and red to commemorate historic links to Britain.
