The school's colors are garnet and gold. School songs include the alma mater, "High Over Towering Pines," along with the "Hymn to the
Garnet and Gold" and the "FSU
Fight Song.""Florida State's school colors of garnet and gold are a merging of the University's past. In 1904 and 1905 the Florida State
College won football cham-pionships wearing purple and gold uniforms. When FSC became Florida State College for Women in 1905,
the football team was forced to attend an all-male school in Gainesville. The following year, the FSCW student body selected
crimson as the official school color. The administration in 1905 took crimson and combined it with the recognizable purple of the
championship football teams to achieve the color garnet. The now-famous garnet and gold colors were first used on an FSU uniform
in a 14-6 loss to Stetson on October 18, 1947.
