About the University of Nebraska, Lincoln Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UNL was founded - 1869 - with the geographic coordinates of its Lincoln campus - 40.820° N, 96.700° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UNL's official primary colors - Scarlet and Cream. UNL's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Red for your passion for welcoming students of any “age, sex, color, or nationality"
- White for your status as a Tier One research institution
- Blue for the guiding spirit of your N150 vision
