About the Villanova University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year VU was founded - 1842 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 40.037° N, 75.343° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using VU's official primary colors - Blue and White. VU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Light Blue for your heartfelt values of veritas, unitas, and caritas
- Gray for your commitment to attracting and forging world changers
- Navy for your proud legacy as America's only Augustinian university
