Description of the flag

From McGill University documentation:

The flag of McGill University is an armorial banner of the university's coat of arms. The exception being the three martlets or birds are placed two above and one below on the arms and on the flag they are on in one horizontal line. The three red martlets are from the coat of arms of James McGill, the founder of the university and are on a white field. The colors red and white are the official colors of Canada. The dancetty partion line along the upper middle of the shield is emblematic of the three hills of Montréal. The book of course represents learning and its inscription 'In Domino Confido' translates as "I trust in the Lord" and is also the motto of James McGill. The two crowns, bearing fleur-de-lis, signifies the location of the university at the base of 'Mount Royal'.
