Canada's Historic Schooner Bluenose Intarsia design by Helen Martin The ship was named after the nickname of the people of Nova Scotia: 'Bluenoses' or 'Bluenosers'.There are a couple of stories to explain the origins of the nickname.
Nova Scotia's potatoes had a blue tinge, when washed, and often had nose-like knobs on them.The potatoes were exported to Maine and, because of them, Nova Scotia became known as the land of the 'Bluenoses'.
The nickname is also said to have come from the early fishing days, when fishermen wore homespun clothing.They would arrive in Boston to sell their fish at the markets, with blue on their noses.The blue was left by their home-dyed blue, woolen mittens, with which they wiped their noses while fishing in dories, on the cold North Atlantic.
The name 'Bluenose' reflects two important sources of livelihood, and the nickname was proudly accepted by Nova Scotians and, later, used in the naming of the world famous tall ship.This intarsia design is a small tribute to the proud ship and the men who sailed her.
