The Canmore Tartan was designed by Dorothy Garen and submitted to The Scottish Register of Tartans on March 16th, 2009.

This tartan represents Canmore's Scottish roots, namely King Malcolm Ceann Mor and the Scots who worked the Canadian Pacific Railway and settled in this area.

Each colour represents an aspect of life in Canmore:

Green is for the evergreen forests
Blue and Yellow are for the sunny Alberta skies
Black represents the coal mines
White for the winter's snow-capped peaks
Fuschia represents the mountain heathers and wildflowers

The colours were chosen to be both regional and historical.

The Canmore Highland Games tartan has been adopted as the Town's official Scottish colours.

The Canmore Highland Games held this year on September 5 & 6th is celebrating its 25th year in 2015.
