Biographical history

Hugh Rankine designed the official Manitoba tartan, which he had certified and registered in the court of The Lord Lyon in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was the first original tartan brought in by the legislature of a Canadian province. These items were donated on behalf of Hugh Rankine's wife, Dorothy Rankine, who managed a weaving program and mail order service with the Searle Grain Company.
