The official College Flag of William & Mary was adopted in 1998 by the Board of Visitors. The flag has a green background with the university's Coat of Arms in the middle of the flag. The flag was presented to the College of William & Mary by William F. Mirguet, Jr., class of 1962 and a former member of the Board of Visitors. A story about the flag was featured in the December 4, 1998 Flat Hat (see p. 4).
