About the flag

The University of Chile emblem consists simply of a dark blue cloth with the university shield in the center. This flag is recognized as official by the Statutes of the University. Web image (two photos of the some halls).

There is also a sports emblem, with the sporting logo called El Chuncho (I could not find in the Web images of this emblem, so I doubt its existence and/or its official character).

The graphic needs to be ammended, since the CoA is smaller as seen in the following images (source: [broken links]
