About the Wake Forest University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Wake Forest was founded - 1834 - with the geographic coordinates of its Winston-Salem campus - 36.135° N, 80.279° W. 

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

  • White for the heartbeat of your beautiful Georgian campus
  • Gray for your commitment to the teacher-scholar ideal
  • Tan for the guiding spirit of your motto: Pro Humanitate
