Odlar Yurdu University (website) is a private university located in Baku. It was founded in 1995, and became a degree granting institution on 8 July 1998. The name is based on the official Azeri national motto, "Oldar Yurdu", which is translated as "Land of The Eternal Fire".

The flag of OYU (photo) is white with the university's coat of arms (photo), surmounting "oyu.az" and the country's name.
The top half of the coat of arms contains the colors of the Azerbaijani flag, running diagonally from upper right to lower left. Centered on the red stripe is a gold-colored map of Azerbaijan. The bottom half of the coat of arms is divided evenly horizontally. The top is pale blue with three red flames, while the bottom is light blue with "Baki 1995" in white characters. A banner above the shield reads "ODLAR YURDU" while one below the shield reads "UNIVERSITETI" in gold capital letters.
