About the Temple Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Temple was founded - 1884 - with the geographic coordinates of its Philadelphia campus - 39.980° N, 75.155° W. 

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

  • Red for your campus' urban heartbeat,
  • Black for the wisdom of the Owl and
  • Gray for Temple's spirit of greatness, first expressed by Russell Conwell.
