About the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UNLV was founded - 1957 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 36.108° N, 115.143° W. 

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

  • Red for the cultural vitality of your community
  • Blue for your states as a Tier One research university
  • Tan for the innovation embodied in your Rebel spirit
