Description of the flag

A black and white photo shows the square banner of arms of Magdalene College, Cambridge Unversity (GB): I was not lucky enough to find a good colour picture. The arms however are shown here in their splendour:

Quoting (gratefully) the blazon from this site
“Quarterly per pale indented or and azure a bend azure and two eagles or with a fret and two martlets or on the bend.”

Magdelene College was founded 1542 by Thomas, Lord Audley, Lord Chancellor (hence the arms) who in fact refounded Buckingham College (established between 1472 and 1483). Not to be confused with Magdalen College, Oxford.
