About the Texas State University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Texas State was founded - 1899 - with the geographic coordinates of its San Marcos campus - 29.888° N, 97.938° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using TXST's official primary colors - Maroon and Gold. TXST's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Blue for the heartbeat of your active, welcoming community
- Peach for your commitment to world-changing research
- Yellow for your Bobcat spirit of fierceness and courage
