About the FAU Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year FAU was founded - 1961 - with the geographic coordinates of its Boca Raton campus - 26.375° N, 80.101° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using FAU's official primary colors - Blue and Red. FAU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Green for your passion for supporting students of all backgrounds
- White for your commitment to world-renowned research
- Gray for your spirit of bold ambition
