About the UA Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UA was founded - 1870 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 41.077° N, 81.511° W. 

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

  • Navy for your heart for engaging with your regional community
  • Cream for your innovative, career-focused curriculum
  • Light Blue for the ecumenical spirit of your Universalist roots
