West Virginia State Colors: Old gold and bluePreviously, in most instances where a color scheme for the state was desired, West Virginia University’s colors of old gold  and blue had been used. The use of the university’s colors had become almost uniform throughout the state, and many people considered them the official state colors even before the 1963 legislative action. The colors, according to the widely used Pantone color matching system, are PMS 286 (blue) and PMS 124.
