Tartan Details - East Carolina University

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "East Carolina University" tartan is shown below.

Designer: Chen, Runying (College of Human Ecology)
Tartan date: 01/11/2010
Registration date: 25 November 2011
Category: Corporate
Restrictions: Yes. The East Carolina University Tartan may not be woven or produced in any form without written permission from the Dean of the College of Human Ecology at East Carolina University.

Registration notes: The East Carolina University (ECU) purple and gold school colours date back to the earlier East Carolina Teacher Training School days. In 1909, the students selected “Old Gold and Royal Purple” as the standard-bearer colours to be used for the school sports teams. It was not until 1934 that the sports teams of the then East Carolina Teachers College were officially named “The Pirates”. Since that time, the colours of purple and gold have become the official colours for East Carolina University itself. The Prple and Gold tartan has been designed by the university's merchandising major program in conjunction with Collegiate Tartan Apparel to celebrate the 'Servire' tradition of the ever growing East Carolina University family and community.
