Somerville College was founded as Somerville Hall in 1879 as an educational
institution for women, without any religious connections. Its name and arms were
taken from the family of the scientist Mary Somerville. It became a mixed
college in 1992.
The flag has the shield from the arms (featuring three five pointed stars and 6 crosslets) in black on a yellow background.
Flag observed flying over the main entrance to the college, 26 April 2004 and 11 April 2005.
