About the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UNC Charlotte was founded - 1946 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 35.303° N, 80.732° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UNC Charlotte's official primary colors - Green and White. UNC Charlotte's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:

  • Yellow for your faithful commitment to the greater Charlotte region
  • Light Green for your exceptionally active student research
  • Cream for your heritage of equipping students to thrive in a changing world
