Tianjin University was established as Peiyang University in Tianjin, China in 1895; its current name dates from 1951. The flag shown on the link was the school flag before the name change (hence the blue-white-red tricolour of the Nationalists?). The coat-of-arms on the flag (also before the name change) could be blazoned as: "Azure, three castles Or between an open book Or inscribed with the Chinese motto 'Seek Truth From Facts' Azure." The shield was placed upon a golden ornamental shield bearing the words 'National Peiyang University' in blue on top.

The third stripe looks more orange than red to me, corresponding with the surrounding of the azure shield. Compare it with the square field in the middle of the flag which looks really red on my screen.

The general pattern of the current flag is the same as Jilin University, but it has a white bar near the top and bottom; and the shield and the school name is orange bordered white. The shield is basically the ornamental shield of Peiyang, but merely inscribed "Peiyang" and "1895" on it.
