About the Texas Tech University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year TTU was founded - 1923 - with the geographic coordinates of its Lubbock campus - 33.584° N, 101.878° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using TTU's official primary colors - Red and Black. TTU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Silver for the vibrant heartbeat of your Spanish Renaissance campus
- White for your status as a Tier One research institution
- Scarlet for your bold, independent Raider spirit
