Our RCMP tartan was designed by Violet Holmes of British Columbia for the 125th anniversary of the founding of the RCMP.  The tartan was worn for the first time by a band of RCMP pipers and drummers at the Nova Scotia International Tattoo in July and August 1998.

NAVY: is the colour of the traditional breeches worn by regular members, and of the saddlecloth used by the Musical Ride
REDfrom the world-renowned red serge tunic
YELLOW: represents the cavalry stripes on the breeches of the ceremonial uniform
BROWNfrom the bison at the centrepiece of the badge; also symbolizes Canada's western plains and the heartland of the RCMP
GREEN: epitomizes the maple leaf, a distinctly Canadian symbol
WHITE: is reminiscent of the lanyard of the ceremonial uniform, it also evokes the link between the Force and Canada's First Nation Peoples for whom white has special spiritual significance
SKY BLUE: elicits both the background of the badge as well as the beret worn by members when acting as United Nations peacekeepers
