Long Description:
The UCO flag is part of a flag plaza located on the southwest corner of campus, in a beautifully landscaped area with the University sign.
The school colors are bronze and blue, and therefore the flag is blue, with bronze U-C-O letters.

UCO is a beautiful campus in Edmond, OK (on the north end of OKC). It is located on 2nd street, between Bryant Ave. and Boulevard. In addition to the typical college sports, they also now have a women's rowing crew. Yes, a rowing crew smack dab in the middle of Oklahoma!
It's a 210 acre campus, and Oklahoma's oldest institute of higher learning. There are currently 112 majors, and a top-notch forensic science program. The US FBI's 2007 report ranked Edmond the 12th safest city in the country among cities with a population of more than 75,000.
The UCO departments and students are very involved in community outreach to provide a link to the residents of Edmond and the UCO campus.

Text on plaque at flag plaza:

Flags embody the essence of patriotism, serve as a beacon of hope, and a reminder of our history.

The flags of the United States of America, the Great State of Oklahoma, the City of Edmond, Oklahoma, and the University of Central Oklahoma are displayed at this entrance to the UCO campus to symbolically identify the public support of this institution of higher education by the community, state, and nation.

The University family gratefully acknowledges the gift of the Philip Parduhn family and Pelco Products Inc. The effort of public spirited individuals, companies, and groups is indispensable in providing enrichment to the University setting and tangible support to the student body.

Keep all of the flags flying!
