Tartan Day, a celebration of Scottish culture and heritage, became a Canadian national day of observance in 2010.
In Canada the idea was born in Nova Scotia at the 1986 meeting of the Federation of Scottish Clans. The original impetus was to celebrate and promote interest in young Nova Scotians about their deep Scottish roots.
April 6 was chosen because it is the date of the 1320 signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, the date of Scottish independence.
