Description of the flag

The principal colors of the shield are the traditional colors of the University, white and royal purple. On the purple field there is a horizontal silver bar, containing, in purple, a star taken from the seal of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and from the seal of Saint Thomas College, predecessor of the University, and two stacks of wheat from the obverse of the coat of arms of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, chosen for their simplicity and easier to accommodate than other Pennsylvania symbols. The upper half of the shield contains, in gold, two wolves grasping a cauldron suspended from a chain; they are taken from the coat of arms of the family of Saint Ignatius Loyola, and they identify the University as a Jesuit institution. Below the silver bar is a golden rising sun, symbolic of Saint Thomas Aquinas, the shining light of the Church and the Patron of the University. Indicating the Diocese of Scranton and William Penn, founder of the Commonwealth, the black border of the shield reproduces the border of the shield of the Diocese and the silver hemispheres are taken from William Penn's coat of arms. The crest is a golden cross of the particular style known as Patonce. It symbolizes Christ, the goal and the norm of the University's educational efforts, and it complements the motto which the University has had since its foundation: Religio, Mores, Cultura.
