Cape Breton Tartan 12” Platter
The tartan of Cape Breton, was designed in 1957 by Elizabeth Grant. Its colour scheme was derived from a 1907 poem by Lillian Crewe Walsh:
Black for the wealth of our coal mines
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'Ors
To show us God's hand has lingered To Bless Cape Breton's shore.
