Splendour Sine Occasu – Splendour Without Diminishment
Our 1871 series evoke the scents during the era of pioneers and prospectors. 1871 is when BC joined Confederation. Ushered in by our second Premier; Amor de Cosmos and that is why we have the railroad to the Pacific. Amor negotiated that British Columbia would join the Dominion only if a railroad was built. The Railroad was paramount and historical for the Dominion Of Canada and it took 10 years to reach the Pacific. Hence the candle; Railroad. The liner in 1871 is the BC Tartan, which was registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans and it was officially adopted in 1974.The Tartan marked the centennial celebrations of the Province as one colony.
The colours of the BC Tartan:
The Pacific Dogwood is the official flower of the province and is represented by white in the tartan.
Green is for the BC forests which cover an area twice as big as all of the New England states and New York State.
Blue is for the Pacific Ocean,
Red is for Canada’s national emblem of the maple leaf.
Gold is for the sun and the crown in the provincial flag. *This is why gold is used in the branding of Hollow Tree.
Fragrance Never Forgets
