The official school colors for East Carolina University - purple and gold - date back to 1909 and were selected by a committee of students. Below is a list of color selections for ECU trademarks by acceptable color model.
*On coated paper, Gold preferences are PMS 123, Hex #FDC82F, CMYK 0-21-88-0, and RGB 253-200-47.
NOTE: At times, an expanded color palette or colors outside of the core palette is necessary. Examples would be the occasional use of a unique uniform, like those that support special initiatives such as breast cancer or honoring U.S. military service members. Although acceptable for special situations, utilizing colors outside of the primary color palette is not intended for long-term use. Retail branding has seasonal palette flexibility and when used correctly, will complement the primary color palette utilized by ECU Athletics.
