Description of the flag

The flag of St John's College of Oxford University (GB) can be seen in a photo made 11 Jan 2006 by Stuart Yeates. The official site, showing the arms is at http://www.sjc.ox.ac.uk. A quote from 'College Life / History' section: "St John's was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas White, a wealthy London merchant." An old rendering of the flag can be seen at http://www.heraldryshop.biz/catalogue/tobaccocards/wills/willsoxcam_clip_image038.jpg and a large modern one can be found at http://info.sjc.ox.ac.uk/graves/sjcbooks.html. The blazon, from the University Calendar 2003-4 is "Gules, on a bordure sable eight estoiles or; on a canton ermine a lion rampant of the second; on the fess point on annulet of the third." (An annulet is the cadency mark for a fifth son, I believe.)
