Missouri Baptist University’s Tartan Embodies a True Spartan

Just like the American flag gives its citizens a sense of loyalty and pride for their country, so is the hope for the Spartan Tartan, that when students and faculty see it around campus, they understand it is more than just a pattern, but rather it makes them feel like they belong to a community that is dedicated to education and centered around Christ.

The officially commissioned Spartan Tartan design adorns many items across campus, such as flags, banners and various promotional materials.     Photo courtesy of Missouri Baptist University
