About the OHIO Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year OHIO was founded - 1804 - with the geographic coordinates of its Athens campus - 39.324° N, 82.101° W. 

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

  • Light Green for the heartbeat of your beautiful Appalachian campus
  • Gray for your dedication to educating the global leaders of tomorrow
  • Black for your proud heritage as Ohio's oldest university
