SOFAAR member and graphic designer Kim Gunn has created the Annapolis Royal Celebration 2017 tartan!

This tartan has been endorsed by the town of Annapolis Royal and is officially registered with the Scottish Registry of Tartans.

Gunn designed this tartan “in honour of the Town of Annapolis Royal and its rich heritage to celebrate Canada’s 150th” according to Jane Nicholson of AIRO who helped out Kim with a financial contribution.

Kim says the tartan was inspired by “the seasonal colours of the North Mountain, the Annapolis River and Bay of Fundy as well as the lush green landscapes, lupins and red soil”.

The tartan will be available in time for Tartan Day on April 6th, 2017.
