Primary Colors

Trinity’s primary color is maroon, matching Pantone® 7623. It is complemented by white. Using the primary palette, Trinity invokes a sense of pride and tradition, even referenced by our Alma Mater: “Your banner bright, maroon and white, we hold in high esteem.”

Tertiary Colors

Trinity’s tertiary colors include green, blue, purple, and gold. Tertiary colors and their shades or hues should not be used without also using a secondary color and the primary maroon.
