Registration notes: Designed by Michael Cannon, Collegiate Tartan Apparel, for Christopher Newport University (CNU). CNU was founded in 1960 as Christopher Newport College, a branch of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and was named for the 17th-century English mariner who helped establish the Jamestown Colony. The University became independent in 1977 and gained university status in 1992. Collegiate Tartan Apparel presented several tartan designs using the official CNU colours of blue and silver to an alumni focus group which selected three designs. All members of the Christopher Newport Alumni Society were then given the opportunity to vote for the design which they felt best represented their alma mater.
