More than 2,000 people voted in an online poll conducted in the summer of 2016, overwhelmingly selecting a black-on-gold pattern over a gold-on-black alternative. The Northern Kentucky University Tartan will be woven into fabrics appropriate for a variety of uses, including apparel, accessories, decorative items, and more. NKU’s official colors were changed from gold and white to black and gold as part of a comprehensive rebranding that began in 2014.
