College Banner




The orange and green College banner, designed by a distinguished Canadian artist, Harold Town, symbolizes the University at the centre of a twelve-college sun burst. Between the spurs of the banner one can also see stylized figures that are a reflection of the twelve aluminum figure sculpture placed above the main entrance to the college in the quadrangle.
