The University of Warwick Flags

The university flag is a banner of arms of the university coat of arms on a horizontal flag as seen here. This picture was taken on February 3, 2016 "outside University House in celebration of LGBT History Month under the hashtag #LGBTHM." There seems to be another version of the University of Warwick Flag (possibly an older version), which is the name of the University in black capital letters over a blue horizontal background.
For additional information go to the Warwick Arts Centre (official website).

The University of Warwick flag poles display these three flags, unfortunately I can't make out the line patterns that seem to exist in the upper white portion of the flags so I left them blank for the time being.

University of Warwick Coat of Arms

From a University of Warwick student blog:

"Like most universities, Warwick has its own coat of arms and motto:

  • The Bear: The bear and ragged staff has been a symbol of Warwickshire since the middle ages, and its first known use was in 1268, when the Beauchamps (beech-ums) became earls of Warwickshire. It has been used since then across Warwickshire, on coats of arms, signs, and as the crest of the county council.
  • The Elephant: The elephant on our crest is a symbol of Coventry, and carries the castle of Coventry on its back. Some theories are that the elephant is a symbol of strength, others that it is the enemy of dragons, and links to the legend that St George the dragonslayer hailed from Coventry. Whatever the case may be, the elephant can be found all over the city, from the FC's logo to the bollards outside Cannon Park shopping centre by the uni!
  • The Isotopes and DNA: These are representative of science, one of the university's first and proudest subjects. Since opening in the 1960s, Warwick university has done excellent work in the field of science and technology, and with the medical school opening just under two decades ago, this is an area of pride which the university continues to uphold.
  • The Motto: As a Latin student, the motto is of course the part of the crest that most interests me. Universitas Warwickensis simply means "University of Warwick", but the motto at the top is much more interesting. Mens Agitat Molem translates as "the mind moves matter". Some have interpreted it as "mind over matter", but I much prefer the similar (but slightly different) idea that it refers to the old saying of moving mountains: i.e that the mind is capable of even the most difficult of tasks."
