About the Arkansas State University Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year A-State was founded - 1909 - with the geographic coordinates of its Jonesboro campus - 35.843° N, 90.674° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Boston's official primary colors - Red and Black. A-State's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:

  • Yellow for your passion for enriching lives
  • White for your celebrated combination of world-class research and student-friendly instruction
  • Gold for your long history of driving progress across the Mid-South region
