The University of Northampton has published a Brand Manual at See especially p. 5 where the brand is explained: “Incorporation of the ‘N’ for Northampton and the ‘U’ for university / Movement in central design represents the River Nene, which flows through both the town and County, and has featured throughout the institution’s history to illustrate a sense of unification and connection with our communities”. (As you can see, the red lines are explanatory only.) Said “movements” traverse a heart-shaped figure, light blue on the left side and dark blue on the right. To the right of the logo appears the name “THE UNIVERSITY OF / NORTHAMPTON”
(first line dark blue, place name bigger and light blue). Pantone colours are given on p. 10: Dark blue 294 and Light blue 3135.

A flag is not mentioned, this is where the photo (above) comes in - the first line of words actually appears to be grey.

From the University’s History page:
First university existed 1260-65. Northampton Technical College founded 1932, School of Art 1937; their successors plus College of Education formed Nene College in 1975. Additional colleges incorporated 1993-1997 and named University College Northampton in 1999. University, 2005: two campuses, 10 000 students.

On this page we see a heraldic pennant adorning a lectern, the same, as a Flickr photo by “acol37”, uploaded 12 Jul 2006. It shows a white field with green edge, the University arms in full colour placed near the top (it is a vertically hung pennant). The armorial detail can be seen here. For the arms, see the full achievement at Admittedly these are the University College arms (precursor), but they appear on the pennant which was in evidence during a University of Northampton event.
