About the Troy University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year Troy was founded - 1887 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 31.801° N, 85.957° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using Troy's official primary colors - Cardinal and Silver. Troy's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Red for your culture of caring
- White for your commitment to expanding access to quality education
- Black for Troy's hallowed legacy as a teacher's college
