The recent update to the https://reg.gg.ca/heraldry/ site shows the new Cape Breton University flag, described as "Azure on a Canadian pale gyronny of eight Or and Azure the Badge proper."The Cape Breton sloop is taken from the Great Seal of the Colony of Cape Breton (1784-1820) and honours the university’s location.The pentagon on a gyronny pattern symbolizes the four academic schools comprising Cape Breton University. The Cape Breton sloop bordered by a wavy division recalls the aquatic theme of the Arms. The kaloqwej, in the form of a star, is a sacred Mi’kmaq symbol underlining the central role this Indigenous community plays on the island and among the student population.
From the Governor General website:
Did not find an examples of the flag in use, though the Mi'kmaq flag is used on campus.
Coat of arms:
