Description of the flag

University of Victoria flag is about 2:3 and is also a simplified banner of arms, as seen at: http://web.uvic.ca/webcoor/graphicstandards/vid/arms.html 

The flag is divided horizontally upper third gold, and lower 2/3 blue. The book is omitted from the flag, and the three martlet birds are in red, and placed on the gold stripe next to the hoist.
David Fowler, 12 July 2004

The colors of UVic are blue an golden, taken from the coat-of-arms mantling and wreath, which in turn, per heraldic usage, are taken from the main shield color, azure, and the main color of the main charge, or — from the book's cover and buckles.

The flag is inspired in the shield partition (upper third golden over blue) but uses mainly the mantling colors, as expected. The three marlets shifted to the hoist are a further hint that this was a very well thought flag design.
Antonio Martins, 13 July 2004

The flag consists of a gold field above a blue field - gold and blue are the official colours of the University. In the top left hand corner are 3 red Martlets, recalling Victoria College's early affiliation with McGill (Victoria College is the predecessor of UVic). The size of the flag is 3:5.

William D. (Bill) West was commissioned to design a new flag for the University of Victoria in 1978 - 1978 was UVic's fifteenth anniversary year. West was a theatrical designer, and was appointed full-time as a professor in the University of Victoria Department of Theatre in 1973. He retired in 1985.

The coat of arms includes a war cry (upper scroll) that reads "והי אוך", which is Hebrew. Source: http://web.uvic.ca/webcoor/graphicstandards/vid/arms.html
António Martins-Tuválkin, 11 July 2005

The Hebrew text simply reads, 'Let there be light,' which is of course taken from the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis.

Antonio's source calls it a "secondary motto".

While the Scottish tradition is for a "slogan" (which can be translated "war cry") to appear above the crest, Victoria is known to be "more English than England", so Scottish Heraldry is unlikely to prevail.
