Oxford Blue is strongly associated with the University of Oxford, especially with the official sport teams, also called the Oxford Blue. It is also used by the Pennsylvania State University, Georgetown University, and the athletic teams of the University of Michigan.
The colour was originally chosen by Charles Wordsworth and Thomas Garnier, two members of the 1829 Boat Race crew using "the Christ Church guernsey as our pattern (four of the crew being Christ Church men), only with a broader and darker blue, instead of black stripe. Hence the origin of the 'Dark Blues'."
