Description of the flag

A photo of the flag is available at, which clearly shows it as a blue flag with the seal in white, and UNIVERSITY AT arched above it, and BUFFALO written below it. The seal can be also found at

"The official university seal is a circular plaque, with "University at Buffalo" and "The State University of New York" surrounding an inner plaque. On the inner plaque is an American bison (locally called a 'buffalo'), signifying the university's local origin, mounted on an escutcheon that is supported by the palm leaves of victory. The escutcheon itself contains two inescutcheons, bearing the initials U and B, and 1846, the year of the university's founding. A chevron separating the inescutcheons is charged with the flames of wisdom."

The university seal at is not identical to the one on the flag; the date has been moved from the shield down to the ring, and replaced with another inescutcheon. Possibly the seal was changed between 2004 and now, in which case <us_ubuff.gif> may reflect the old version.
