  • Notes: This tartan design, called "We Are Crimson," has been chosen as the winning design by University of Alabama fans and a judging panel. Linnzi Rich of Stevenson, Alabama, a junior majoring in clothing, textile and interior design, designed the tartan. "I wanted my tartan to be easily recognized as the University?s plaid," Rich said of her design. "So, naturally I wanted the predominant colors to be crimson and white, with accents of black and gray. Secondly, I wanted it to represent the entire University, so I used 13 lines to represent the 13 colleges that comprise The University of Alabama today. "Then, in the center of the design, the innermost white square represents Denny Chimes, and the whole central plaid represents the Quad because the Quad is the heart of the campus. The four corners of the center plaid speak to our past and represent the four original buildings that survived the fire set by the Union troops during the Civil War." Offiial colors of the University of Alabama are Crimson (RGB 153, 0, 0) and Warm Grey (RGB 238, 238, 238). For this record the official RGB codes provided by the U of A were used. The grey in the on-line graphic created by Ms. Rich appears to contain more brown than recorded here. Matthew Newsome was on the judging panel for the tartan and served as consultant to the Univeristy of Alabama.
