About the Mercer Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Mercer was founded - 1833 - with the geographic coordinates of its Macon campus - 32.828° N, 83.649° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Mercer's official primary colors - Orange and Black. Mercer's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Blue for your spirit of stewardship for our global community,
- White for Mercer's Baptist heritage of free thought and rigorous inquiry, and
- Yellow for your spirit of fostering and embracing community, both within the university and without.
