Registration notes: Designed by Shirley Martin of Collegiate Tartan Apparel. The University of Delaware traces its heritage to a small school founded in 1743 in New London, Pennsylvania, by the Rev Dr Francis Alison, a noted colonial scholar of Scottish descent. Graduates of the school’s first class included signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This tartan is based on the college colours of blue and gold, officially adopted in 1889. These are also the colours of the State of Delaware and of Sweden, from which Delaware’s first permanent colonists came. The design was developed under the supervision of Keith W Heckert, senior art director and trademark licensing manager in the Office of Communications and Marketing, in keeping with the University's official marks and colours.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
