About the University of Pittsburgh Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Pitt was founded - 1787 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 40.444° N, 79.961° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Pitt's official primary colors - Royal Blue and Gold. Pitt's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Navy for your warm embrace of diversity and inclusion
- Yellow for your legacy of breakthrough medical research
- Blue for the pioneer spirit of your founders
