About the Indiana State University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Indiana State was founded - 1865 - with the geographic coordinates of its Terre Haute campus - 39.471° N, 87.408° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Indiana State's official primary colors - Blue and White. Indiana State's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:

  • Blue for your heart for integrity and personal growth,
  • Gray for ISU's well-rounded curriculum that prepares strong minds, and
  • Blue for your spirit of stewardship for our global community.
