In June, 2012, the Kinmount Committee for Planning and Economic Development had a brainstorming session to determine colours that represented Kinmounts heritage to be incorporated into a new Kinmount Tartan. The following colours were submitted to the Scottish company Strathmore Woolen Company Limited:

90 % of the tartan to incorporate the following:

Blue - - to represent the water and the sky and our Icelandic roots

Rusty Red - - to represent the waters of the Burnt River

Green - - to represent our Irish roots and the green of our forests

 

10% of the tartan to incorporate the following:

Yellow - - to represent our Scottish roots

Brown - - to represent the timbers and our logging industry

Black - - to represent the railroad and its significance in our settlement

 

The Strathmore Woolen Company submitted 5 designs which were voted on by the Committee to determine Kinmounts tartan.Following this decision, samples of the fibers were sent so exact shades of colours could be selected.The tartan is the only tartan registered in Scotland as the Kinmount Village tartan.

 

The Kinmount Committee for Planning and Economic Development unveiled the tartan at the annual Christmas Music Night December 8, 2012.
