It is the flagship university of the Iowa State University System and has an extension office in all 99 counties of Iowa, which bring Iowa State University research-based educational experiences to Iowans. It is the largest university in the state of Iowa by undergraduate enrollment and is the third largest university by total enrollment in the Big 12 athletic conference. Total enrollment has declined from a previous high in 2016 of 36,660 and has been impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Iowa State is classified among 'R1: Doctoral Universities Very high research activity'. Founded in 1858 and coeducational from its start, Iowa State became the nation's first designated land-grant institution when the Iowa Legislature accepted the provisions of the 1862 Morrill Act on September 11, 1862, making Iowa the first state in the nation to do so.

The flag is red with a large red I outlined in yellow, and STATE arched on top of it.

I used to work at Iowa State, and cannot ever recall seeing a university flag in a non-sports context.
