About the U of A Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year U of A was founded - 1871 - with the geographic coordinates of its Fayetteville campus - 36.069° N, 94.174° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using U of A's official primary colors - Red and White. U of A's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Black for the heartbeat of your "student-first" philosophy
- White for your place among America's top public research universities
- Gray for your spirit of reconciliation endowed by your Reconstruction roots
