Although Canada has a long history with the tartan, including soldiers who fight while wearing a kilt in the First World War, he was never an official tartan for Canada.

“This is something that all Canadians can be proud to wear,” said Hubley Maple Leaf Tartan.
Wallace said the history of Canada requests that this kind of recognition.
“I think it’s really important to have an understanding of how we got where we are today. And this is largely due to the Scots,” said Wallace.
