Official Brand Colors
Baylor’s iconic green and gold can be traced as far back as 1897. As legend has it, a member of the student committee selected to choose the official colors for the University was traveling to a debate tournament by train. Looking out the window, she was struck by the beautiful green fields covered with thousands of spring dandelions. Adopted by the student body, the “green and gold” would go on to define the school’s athletics teams, usher in the nation’s first Homecoming and become immortalized in the school song.
Today, the University’s signature colors of Baylor Green (signifying academic growth, renewal and hope) and University Gold (symbolizing excellence, courage and compassion) remain at the core of the Baylor Brand. As they are central to our identity, they should not be altered.
Matching University Colors
When used in each medium (screen printing, embroidery, plastics, clothing, digital, etc.), the goal is always to match the colors as they would appear printed on coated paper.
On uncoated paper, the color closest to the official Baylor Green is PMS 3435u. However, as the closest color to University Gold (PMS 1235) prints towards orange on uncoated paper, PMS 116u has been chosen instead. When in doubt, refer to the original Baylor colors and match as closely as possible.
