Which of these three tartans do you like best?


To vote for one of the Gonzaga tartans go to this site. – remember: one vote per person. Voting closes Friday.

A group of marketing students at Gonzaga University has created three tartans and is asking the public for help picking the right one to represent Gonzaga.

The project, Lines of Legacy, features tartan patterns in blue, green, red and white, selected to reflect Gonzaga’s Italian and Irish heritage as well as its school colors.

“It’s a huge project but we are really excited about it,” said Veronica Atkinson, one of the students promoting the project.

Online voting is open through Friday.

Once a tartan has been selected, the students in Marketing 490 will be responsible for the design, production and launch of what will become the official Gonzaga tartan.

The 15 students who are running the project were selected through an application process and have one semester to pull it off.

The tartan will be revealed in April.
