Description of the flag

The flag of Balliol College of Oxford University is seen at where it is being flown on the last day of Michaelmas Term 2007. Another photo can be found at The college home page also shows the arms and the flag.
The blazon, from the University Calendar is "Azure, a lion rampant argent, crowned or, impaling gules, an orle argent." An old rendering of the arms can be seen at the page. From we learn that the lion represents Galloway, and the orle Balliol proper.
