About the Drexel Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Drexel was founded - 1891 - with the geographic coordinates of its Philadelphia campus - 39.956° N, 75.189° W. 

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

  • Red for your campus' urban heartbeat,
  • Gray for Drexel students’ practical mindset, and
  • Green for your enduring spirit of innovation & renewal
