Located in Meguro City Tokyo and established in 1929.
The institute flag has white background with a gold-colored emblem in the center and the institute name in gold Chinese characters written vertically.
According to the "60th Anniversary History of Tokyo Institute of Technology" published in November 1940, the flag was adopted on May 25, 1933, and its creator was Mr. Kunzo Minami, a professor at Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko and a lecturer at the university.
The university emblem of kanji letters “大學” is embroidered with gold thread and surrounded by a Gothic pattern. The white background is based on the tradition of the Tokyo Higher Technical School, the predecessor of the university, and the Gothic pattern around it represents "learning from the past".
