About the Indiana State 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.
