Description of the flag

See for a UFE, at least to me: a horizontal yellow/white flag with a golden interwoven "UC" monogram. A university?
According to common S. American practices, both flags show the emblems at an angle, meant for viewing indoors when furled, though I do not usually reproduced them as such.

This is the flag of "Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú" (Pontifical Catholic University of Peru), founded on 24 March 1917 by the French-borne Reverent Father Jorge Dinthilac, who served as the first Rector of the (then) "Universidad Católica del Perú". On 30 September 1942, the university was granted the honorary title of "Pontifical" and the Archbishop of Lima and Primate of Peru became its Grand Chancellor.
The photo reported by Eugene was taken during the "Adapting to a World without Glaciers: Realities, Challenges and Action" conference, organized on 7-15 July 2009 at Lima by PUCP and other sponsoring bodies.
The flag of PUCP can be seen on a photo taken during the awarding of the title of Doctor Honoris Causa to Javier Pérez de Cuellar), shown on p. 10 of the official book of the university.
The PUCP photo albums contain several sightings of the flag, for instance:
- Graduation ceremony, 25 July 2008
- First Peruvian Congress of Analytical Philosophy, 23-25 June 2008
- Fourth Symposium of Students in Philosophy, 11-14 December 2008

A Catholic university was my first guess too, given the Vatican colors.

Asociación de Egresados y Graduados PUCP

"Asociación de Egresados y Graduados PUCP" (AEG-PUCP), the association of the ex-alumni and graduates from PUCP, was founded in 1989.

The flag of AEG-PUCP, as seen on photos taken during the 11th Ceremony of the Distinguished ex-Alumni (table and full-size flags), held at PUCP on 4 November 2008, is white white a golden fringe and the emblem of AEG-PUCP in the middle. The emblem of AEG-PUCP is made of a blue seven-pointed comet placed vertically and surrounded by two yellow half-ellipses, the whole surrounding by the name of the association in black capital letters. There seems to be something written in smaller letters below the emblem.
