Prince Edward Island Tartan Map
In 1960 this design by Jean Reed was adopted as the official tartan of Prince Edward Island.
The rich land and the surrounding waters are represented in colours that symbolize grass and trees, whitecaps on waves, a brilliant sun. And, of course, the famous red-brown soil.
A design note: this tartan presented a unique challenge. Other tartans I have adapted to cross-stitch are comprised of farily simple, fairly small design squares - called setts - which, when repeated, form what we know as a tartan. The PEI tartan is far more complex, the basic sett itself being comprised of several patterns of form and colour before any repetition occurs.
