About the Wake Forest University Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year WFU was founded - 1834 - with the geographic coordinates of its Winston-Salem campus - 36.135° N, 80.279° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using WFU's official primary colors - Gold and Black. WFU's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- White for the heartbeat of your beautiful Georgian campus
- Gray for your commitment to the teacher-scholar ideal
- Tan for the guiding spirit of your motto: Pro Humanitate
