About the University of Tennessee, Knoxville Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UT was founded - 1794 - with the geographic coordinates of its Knoxville campus - 35.960° N, 83.920° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UT's official primary colors - Orange and White. UT's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Torch for your passion for serving the state of Tennessee
- Smokey for your dedication to education, discovery, and connection
- Marigold for the pioneering spirit of your frontier founding
