Description of the flag

Here are renditions of the two flags used by my Alma Mater, the University of Kansas.

The first is the normal "KU" flag flown during normal weekdays, and consists of a blue field containing the letters "KU" in red bordered by white.

KU appears to use both the KU logo flag shown at the top of this page, as well as the blue/white/blue "K" supporters flag as official or quasi-official flags on campus.

KUMC was formerly an independent university, but is now fully integrated with the University of Kansas.

They do retain their own police department however, and both the blue/white/blue "K" flag, and a different version of the KU logo flag are used in department ceremonies.
