  • Notes: The North Dakota State University Bison Tartan may not be woven or produced in any form without written permission from the Head of the Department of Apparel, Design and Hospitality Management of North Dakota State University. The design right for the North Dakota State University Bison Tartan is held by North Dakota State University under the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Formal registration is pending. The tartan design is the winning student entry for the Tartan Design Competition sponsored by the Department of Apparel, Design and Hospitality Management at North Dakota State University (NDSU). The contest challenged students from the department to create an innovative and symbolic tartan inspired by the history and colours of NDSU. The process encouraged students? innate interest and skill to design a tartan that represented the NDSU brand in a creative and marketable manner. In addition to creating the design, students submitted an essay explaining any research conducted, process of design, interpretation of NDSU history/colours, and an explanation of original tartan design. Faculty from the department voted on the top 10 (out of 75) designs which were narrowed down to three by a university committee. Faculty, staff, alumni, and students then participated in an online voting system to choose the winning design. According to designer Kelly Nelson, The Yellow and the Green, which is the school song, was the inspiration for the design. The song states that the yellow and green are the same colours reflected in the prairies of North Dakota, which are spacious and wonderful. In the spring, the fields are green and in the fall, they turn yellow. Yellow also stands for the bountiful grain produced in North Dakota. The unity of the yellow and shades of green and the simplicity of the design characterize both NDSU as well as North Dakota traditions.
