About the University of Vermont Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year the UVM was founded - 1791 - with the geographic coordinates of its Burlington campus - 44.477° N, 73.196° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UVM's official primary colors - Green and Gold. UVM's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Brown for your campus' rural heartbeat,
- Black for the shared mindset expressed in UVM's Common Ground, and
- White for your campus spirit, in which all students matter and succeed.
