About the Johns Hopkins University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year JHU was founded - 1876 - with the geographic coordinates of its Baltimore campus - 39.3291° N, 76.6216° W.

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Johns Hopkins' official colors - Heritage Blue and Spirit Blue.
