Due to a groundswell of demand, here is a photo of the Rice flag that we found the other day. This was taken by my intrepid colleague Amanda Focke, assistant head of Special Collections in the Woodson Research Center.
The only picture of a Rice flag that looks shiny like this is the one the color guard is displaying at the Pitzer inauguration. Usually it looks like a pale linen. I also wonder if the wreath was always blue. I think it would look better in green.
