About The Citadel Tartan
This official tartan pattern -- adopted by The Citadel in 1979 -- celebrates the university's storied past and promising future, creating a timeless keepsake you’ll cherish for years to come.
The tartan incorporates the college’s official colors of blue and white. The gold woven into the signature fabric is reminiscent of the brass on the South Carolina Corps of Cadets uniforms, and red accents represent a cadet officer’s sash.
