FSU football players wear turquoise jerseys during the 2024 spring game

Garnet, gold and turquoise?

Florida State football fans watching the spring show Saturday may have noticed a new jersey being worn by Seminole quarterbacks and a few other players, who are wearing turquoise Seminole heritage uniforms along with gold helmets and garnet or gold pants.

The jerseys will be used for “non-contact” players during the spring show.

The heritage uniforms are used in multiple sports across the state of Florida, most notably men’s and women’s basketball, as a tribute to the school’s roots with the Seminole Tribe of Florida and this is the first time they appear on the football field.

In a press release last season announcing FSU’s Seminole Heritage Night, the school described the meaning behind the turquoise and its differences from the iconic garnet and gold.

“The color turquoise represents harmony, friendship and community in the culture of many Native Americans.”

The football jerseys first caught fans’ attention last season when Florida State put the turquoise jerseys up for sale prior to the team’s Seminole Heritage night against Duke last October.

The popularity of the jerseys led to fans wanting to see the team wear the uniforms on the field.

No confirmed uniform combination has been announced for this fall, but fans will certainly be excited about the use of the historic turquoise jerseys during the spring show. Recently, the Seminoles wore white and turquoise hats during FSU’s baseball game against the University of Miami.
