Join us as the Mayor unveils the official Tartan for the Town of Cobourg. Lying in Northumberland County on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Canada, the “Feel Good” town of Cobourg’s Victoria Hall – named after Queen Victoria – was opened in 1860 by Edward VII when Prince of Wales. To link with that event, the Cobourg tartan is largely based on the 1853 Balmoral tartan designed by Victoria’s husband Prince Albert. Teamed with that classic design is a distinctive element from the Northumberland Check – a simple shepherd’s plaid that has enjoyed cross-border popularity in Scotland for very many centuries. The colours are from Cobourg’s town logo and it’s coat of arms granted in 2007 by the College of Arms in London.
Merchandise will be available for sale at the unveiling ceremony.
