The Crest

New Crest for 2020 and how the crest came to be ...

When the band first formed we were missing an identity. Not long there after the name came to be of the Cedar Hills Caledonian Pipe Band. We then needed an crest to be able to have others recognize us and a contest was created.

We opened this to the world through the internet to have a design created. We received many great submissions including ones from members of the band as well. However it was a local community member, Tom McIntosh that came up with the winning design.

The original crest was a flat image design and contained almost all the elements that you see in the current crest, the only thing being added in June of 2010 was the two maple leafs, Surrey, BC and Canada. When we aquired a new bass drum we had the depth and polish that you see now added to the crest to make it complete.

The Meaning

The background ...

The background is filled with the Clan Newlands tartan, an actual photograph was used of the tartan and a wave in the material added to give the tartan movement and depth in presentation. The Clan Newlands Tartan Worn as the tartan of choice by the pipe band is was selected to honor Colin Newlands, a strong piper in the community until his untimely death in 1996, and for Garth Newlands founding member of the pipe band who has servered as Pipe Major since our inception. Premission for the band to wear the tartan was received from William Newlands of Lauriston, one of the Clan Chiefs in Scotland.

The Name ... Cedar Hills Caledonian, Cedar Hills is the local community neighbourhood within the City of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada in which the band can be found. Caledonian, is a geographical term used to refer to places, species, or items in or from Scotland, or particularly the Scottish Highlands. Since the pipe band performs almost always together, the name on the bass drum has been shortened to be "Cedar Hills Caledonian" the former crest included the words "Pipe Band" as well, we are sure that this can be implied when seeing us altogelter.

The Crest ... Clan Newlands The crest is taken from the Clan Newlands, it includes the motto: Honour the Spur 1469 to respect the hooded game cock wearing fighting spurs standing proud in the middle. 1469 leads back to the forming of the Clan.

Location ... Surrey, Canada location is everything, in this case we are located in beautiful Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.
