Each Host Games for the Scottish Masters Athletics International Masters World Championships designs a commemorative patch for their event.
"I began with the colours of the Moncton tartan," explains designer, Carole Goguen. "The brown in the tartan symbolizes the muddy tidal water of the Petitcodiac River. Since the event is being held next to the River, I felt it was a perfect design element. The tidal bore is iconic to Moncton, so I included the 'wave' on the river."
"After adding the hammer throw icon from the Masters logo, I felt the Moncton skyline was the perfect backdrop. The green in the grass, blue in the skyline, and gold in the sky are all part of our tartan colours."
"The only tartan colour that was missing then was red," she adds. "Of course, my mind went straight to the lobster! So I added the lobster claws since nearby Shediac is known as the 'Lobster Capitol of the World'."
