Registration notes: In 1869, San Antonio, Texas, suffered a cholera outbreak. In response to San Antonio's need for assistance, The Catholic Bishop of Texas, Claude M. Dubuis sent three French nuns, Sister Madeleine Chollet, Sister Pierre Cinquin, and Sister Agnes Buisson. They set up San Antonio's first hospital which is now called Santa Rosa. The building of the hospital led to an orphanage, which led to establishing a school in 1893. That school would later become what is now the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) founded in 1996. The tartan depicts the UIW colors of red and black and its creation was a project of the UIW Fashion Design Program. The three white lines interwoven into the pattern, represents the three sisters who in 1869 founded the congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word which still sponsors UIW today.
