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
