Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras has already reported, but the
description of the flag is wrong (upside down)
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH) was inaugurated on 19 September 1847 by Juan Lindo (1790-1857), President of the Republic (1847-1852), and Father José Trinidad Reyes, the first Rector. The university succeeded Sociedad del Genio Emprendedor y del Buen Gusto (Society of Entrepreneurial Genius and Good Taste), established on 14 December 1845 by Reyes' friends and students, Máximo Soto, Alejandro Flores, Miguel Antonio Rovelo, Yanuario Girón and Pedro Chirinos, transformed on 10 March 1846 in the state-sponsored Academia Literaria de Tegucigalpa, directed by Reyes.
Originally housed in the San Francisco Convent of Tegucigalpa, the university was transferred in 1896 to a building adjacent to La Merced church, and in 1965 to the today's Ciudad Universitaria.
The university was granted autonomy by Decree No. 170, issued on 15 October 1957 by the Military Government.
UNAH is composed of 10 Faculties: Social Sciences; Chemistry and Pharmacy; Dentistry; Law; Engineering; Humanities and Arts; Spatial Sciences; Economical, Administrative and Accounting Sciences; Sciences; and Medicine.
