On a recent trip to Oxford, I noticed that most of the colleges of the
universities had armorial banners flying. The Pembroke College flag is a
banner of arms quartered white-yellow-blue-red. In the white quarter is a red
rose; in the yellow quarter is a thistle; in each of the blue and red quarters
is a white lion rampant, and a third lion rampant lies on the join between the
red and blue quarters.

The china beaker was made by the W. H. Goss of Stoke-on-Trent. The Registration
Number 60863 on the piece was first used in 1886. The Goss Factory produced boat
club flags for Oxford boating clubs - this one for the Pembroke College.
