The Austin College Page Plaid was designed from the traditional Austin Plaid, reflecting the Scottish heritage of the College’s namesake, Stephen F. Austin. The addition of the school colors of crimson and gold made it uniquely Austin College.
The plaid was registered in the official Scottish Register of Tartans in 2009 with the following Registration Note:
“Created to honor the 14th President of Austin College and his Scottish heritage on the occasion of his retirement. A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland. This tartan may only be woven with the authority of Austin College, Texas or their agent.”
