About the University of Arkansas Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Arkansas was founded - 1871 - with the geographic coordinates of its Fayetteville campus - 36.068° N, 94.174° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Arkansas's official primary colors - Red and White. Arkansas'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
