University Flag

The University itself does not have a flag for itself. It relies on the state flag to serve as the official university flag (sometimes this fact is used to describe the U of A as the "flagship university" for Arkansas.) This was decided by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees on November 8th, 1940, with decision number 100.6. The Board Policy states the following: "STATE FLAG OFFICIAL UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS FLAG - The State Flag of Arkansas shall be the official flag of the University of Arkansas."

A historical note about the seal from the U of A Marketing Guidelines:

The Seal - The official seal of the University of Arkansas was designed by Zelma Rothrock in 1923 and adopted by the Board of Trustees that same year. While no record can be found providing a translation of what Mrs. Rothrock meant by "Veritate Duce Progredi," David Fredrick, associate professor of classical studies, has provided this translation: "To Advance with Truth as (Our) Guide." The central design element of the seal is the east entrance to Old Main. Although the seal has represented the Fayetteville campus since 1923, it is also used by the Board of Trustees and the president of the University of Arkansas System.
