Grant of Arms, Supporters, Flag and Badge

Vol. IV, p. 244

Description: A banner of the Arms; Coat of arms: Azure fretty of bendlets Argent and bendlets sinister Or; Symbolisme:The white (heraldic silver) represents the Tattoo's 25th anniversary. Blue and white are the colours of Nova Scotia with the blue also evoking the Nova Scotia tartan. The gold symbolizes the colour of many of the brass instruments played by bands which have been part of tattoos over the years. The diagonal pattern reflects the intricate "crossover" of musicians marching that is often a feature of presentations. The overall pattern of diagonals is a subtle reference to the tartans that are such a spectacular visual element of the event. Image: at Governor-General's website
