About the University of South Florida Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year USF was founded - 1956 - with the geographic coordinates of its Tampa campus - 28.058° N, 82.413° W. 

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

  • Evergreen for the vibrant heartbeat of your diverse community
  • White for your dedication to cultivating student success for all types of learners
  • Apple for your forward-looking, entrepreneurial spirit
