About the Florida International University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year FIU was founded - 1965 - with the geographic coordinates of its Miami campus - 25.757° N, 80.373° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using FIU's official primary colors - Blue and Gold. FIU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Light Blue for the heartbeat of your urban campus
- White for your focus on research and innovation
- Yellow for your spirit of truth, freedom, and respect
