Description of the flag

This flag is far and away Auburn's most popular basic logo flag and has been at least since the late 1960's. It also comes in orange and blue, and the 3 are used interchangeably. The AU logo itself has been around a really long time and has graced not only Auburn's football helmets, but virtually everything associated with Auburn University. Several years ago, a fairly large white (10x15? feet) AU logo flag regularly flew in the middle of Auburn's campus. I haven't been there in a while, so I'm not sure about today. If one travels through Alabama, they will see thousands of the 3x5 versions of this basic logo flag.

In 1872, under the Morrill Act, it became the state's first land-grant university and was renamed as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama. In 1892, it became the first four-year coeducational school in Alabama, and in 1899 was renamed Alabama Polytechnic Institute (API) to reflect its changing mission. In 1960, its name was changed to Auburn University to acknowledge the varied academic programs and larger curriculum of a major university. Source:
