About the University of Nebraska, Lincoln Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Nebraska was founded - 1869 - with the geographic coordinates of its Lincoln campus - 40.820° N, 96.700° W. 

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

  • Red for your passion for welcoming students of any “age, sex, color, or nationality"
  • White for your status as a Tier One research institution
  • Blue for the guiding spirit of your N150 vision
