In November of 2017, the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture dedicated a new building, the Don Tyson Center for Agricultural Sciences. This building, which separates from the main University of Arkansas campus, mostly holds labs, meeting spaces and administrative offices for the Division of Agriculture. At this building, dedicated to the founder of Tyson Foods, there is a white flag with a logo on it.
The Division of Agriculture logo, created in September 2011, uses Pantone
194, to match colors used by the main University and black. The flag is not
described in the document (
http://uaex.edu/media-resources/docs/logo_guidelines.pdf) but from what I
could see it was about 75% the height on a white background. I had not seen the
flag before the building dedication, so the exact start date of the use of the
flag is not certain. I also believe this is the first official flag of a
division of the U of A, especially since the main University of
Arkansas uses the state flag as the official flag of the university.

About the division:
"The University of Arkansas System Division embraces two parts of the historic land grant mission: the Arkansas Agricultural Station and the Cooperative Extension Service. In January, the Division dedicated the Don Tyson Center for Agricultural Sciences. This state-of-the-art, LEED-certified building represents the new headquarters for the Agricultural Experiment Station, as well as offering a wing of much-needed new laboratory space, along with working spaces for graduate students."
