About the Colorado State University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year CSU was founded - 1870 - with the geographic coordinates of its Fort Collins campus - 40.553° N, 105.086° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using CSU's official primary colors - Green and Gold. CSU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- White for the heartbeat of your active, friendly community
- Gray for your emphasis on curiosity, passion, rigor, and innovation
- Black for the powerful spirit of the CSU Effect
