Kellogg College, which is closely associated with the Department for Continuing
Education, has a student body currently numbering 350 adult students of the
University, the majority of whom are non-resident and study on a part-time
basis. They undertake postgraduate taught and research degrees, as well as
post-graduate certificates in a number of subjects. The college was first
incorporated as a Society of Entitlement at Rewley House, the name of the
building in which the department was based, inaugurated in 1990 and took its
current name in 1994, following funding from the Kellogg Foundation. It is
currently moving its premises from Rewley House to a new estate of buildings in
the Norham Manor area of north Oxford.
The flag is a banner of arms. It has a red border and the field is divided vertically with a zigzag line, white to the hoist and blue to the fly. In the white half is a red inverted chevron above a blue open book. In the red half is an head of some sort of grain. As well as flying from Rewley House, the flag is mentioned at http://www.kellogg.ox.ac.uk/docs/newstt99.pdf (College Newsletter of 30th July, 1999), where it mentions that a flag was presented to the W K Kellogg Foundation Trustees, "to fly from the Foundation flagpole in Battle Creek on appropriate occasions".

Meaning: The college was founded in 1990 as Rewley House. It has an egalitarian spirit and was the first home for part-time students at the University of Oxford. Today it has the greatest number of students of all colleges. It was renamed in honour of Will Keith Kellogg in 1994. Kellogg was an American industrialist in food manufacturing, famous for his cereals, represented by the ear, among those the world wide known corn flakes.
