About the Boston College Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year BC was founded - 1863 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 42.355° N, 71.168° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Boston College's official primary colors - Maroon and Gold. BC's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Cardinal for your campus’ urban heartbeat
- Red for how you foster interconnected mindsets
- Tan for your spirit of generating new knowledge to benefit society
