Description of the flag

Divided by a horizon yellow above green, with the seal near the hoist, and the name written in yellow across the base.
Masao Okazaki, 25 June 2019

The seal refers to Tusculum University (Tusculum College before 2018), portraying the Tusculum Arch. Founded in 1794, Tusculum University is the oldest institution of higher education in Tennessee, the twenty-eighth oldest in the nation, and the oldest coeducational institution affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The wooded 140-acre Tusculum campus has nine buildings and the Tusculum Arch that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Built in 1917, the Arch has come to symbolize Tusculum College. The architectural form is present throughout the campus. Costing $400, the Arch was built by one of Tennessee’s foremost stonemasons, J. T. Ponder. The construction of the Arch was a project conceived in the patriotic fervor that swept the Tusculum College campus and the rest of the country after the United States entered World War I.
