Flag is a logo shield on white.

The version of the University of Richmond seal that appears on the flag in the photo that Dave found does not appear to be any of the official versions of the shield. It makes me wonder if the photo is actually of an unofficial flag rather than the flag officially used by UR.

The shield on the flag in the photograph shows no white fimbriation in the dark blue bars above and below the word "RICHMOND." The official logo has a thick dark blue bar at the top, a thin white stripe, then a thin dark blue stripe, before the white chief bearing the word "RICHMOND," followed by another thin dark blue stripe, thin white stripe, and then the dark blue outline of the shield, followed by what looks to be a dark blue orle on white, and then the red and white checker pattern. On the flag, all of those thin white stripes are missing, as well as the orle around the checker pattern. That's what I was referring to as not matching the official logos and therefore possibly being an unofficial flag.

Of course, I also found another photograph of yet another version of the flag. This one is at ( and shows the university flag being carried alongside the American flag during the annual commencement ceremony. This flag also has the university logo centered on a white field. The logo, in this case, has the shield as described above, with the word "RICHMOND" in blue text on white, the words "UNIVERSITY OF" in white letters on the dark blue bar above, and the words "FOUNDED 1830" in white letters on the dark blue bar below. This logo does not appear on the university website in the branding center, and I suspect it may be a previous version of the logo. Since it appeared on a flag being carried during the commencement ceremony, my assumption is that the flag was official as it was acting in an official capacity, leading to my speculation that it's a previous version. But I don't know for sure.
