About the Villanova University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Villanova was founded - 1842 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 40.036° N, 75.342° W. 

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

  • Light Blue for your heartfelt values of veritas, unitas, and caritas
  • Gray for your commitment to attracting and forging world changers
  • Navy for your proud legacy as America's only Augustinian university
