The official College Flag of the College of William and 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 and 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).
