Erzincan University (website) was established by Law No. 5,467, passed on 1 March 2006, as the merger of institutes formerly depending on Atatürk University. The oldest of these bodies were the Erzincan Vocational School and the Erzincan School of Education, established in 1976.
The university is composed of 9 Faculties, 5 Schools, A11 Vocational Schools and 3 Graduate Schools.

The university's flag (photo, photo, photo, photo, photo) is white with the university's emblem.
The emblem is shaped like a Seljuk double-headed eagle. On the top, two stylized battering rams represent the Ak Koyonlu [White Sheep Turkomans, 1378-1501] dynasty. The water drop represents river Euphrates.
The honeycomb forms a bunch of grapes.
The circle and the top edge of the double-headed eagle section of the emblem, flipped up from the top down, symbolize letter "B" of the alphabet of Göktürk (Blue Turks). At the same time the icon means “eb”, “a house” / “a residence”.
The circular shape and the hexagonal structure of the emblem means that the university is moving from local vision to the world.
The ultramarine blue color reflects the impact of the academic institution.
