The Kellogg College Tartan

The unique Kellogg College tartan

Kellogg is the only Oxford College with its own bespoke tartan. This unique design is formally registered as number 10,912 by the official Scottish Registry of Tartans, operated by the Scottish Government. It may be worn only by Fellows, students and alumni of the College and those invited to do so by the College President.

There is a variety of apparel for both men and women available in the Kellogg tartan. Details can be found in the Kellogg College Tartan Product Catalogue 2017. A Kellogg kilt is particularly welcome at formal College occasions such as Guest Night Dinners.

The Kellogg tartan is emblematic of Kellogg’s proud tradition of being one of the most international colleges in Oxford. Its mission is to bring education to the widest range of people, whatever their nationality, age or social background. It achieves this in part through its emphasis on part-time and distance learning, which means that its student body is based around the globe. Kellogg’s inclusivity and innovation are also evident in the fact that it is the first Oxford college to have a Welsh grace rather than the traditional Latin. The College year is filled with celebrations drawn from across the world, including St Patrick’s Day, Oktoberfest, Lunar New Year, Thanksgiving, Cinco de Mayo, Divali, and of course Burns Night, which provides the ideal opportunity to sport the Kellogg tartan!

The design features the red, blue and white colours of the College crest with a narrow thread of gold representing an ear of wheat and the College’s close association with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. It was created for Kellogg College on the occasion of the 2013 Burns Night Supper by Dr Rob Collins, Visiting Fellow of the College.
