About the Miami Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Miami was founded - 1809 - with the geographic coordinates of its Oxford campus - 39.5087° N, 84.7345° W. 

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

  • Red for the heartbeat of your picturesque campus
  • Gray for your proud status as one of the original "Public Ivies"
  • Blue for your spirit of responsibility for our global future
