About the Tulane Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Tulane was founded - 1847 - with the geographic coordinates of its New Orleans campus - 29.940° N, 90.120° W. 

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

  • Avenue Blue for your campus' distinctively NOLA heartbeat,
  • Gibson Stone for your environment for enriching minds,
  • Crisp Linen for your spirit of integrity and wisdom.
