1672 Gronings Studentenvaandel











Een wat betere foto van het vaandel van de Studentencompagnie, met begeleidende tekst uit de Groninger Volksalmanak uit 1838.

A slighty better pic from a colour of the Groninger "Student-company", which was used in 1672 as well. It's one of the few surviving 17th century colours as well, outside of the Rijksmuseum.

Note the weapon in the left hand corner of the Province of Groningen (The States of Groningen gave the colour as a gift). The colour is decribed as gold, with green/blue leaves on it.

The motto is Deo Patriae Academiae, For God, Country and the Academy (= University). The acoompagning text is from the Groninger Volksalmanak of 1838. The colour now is kept in the cellars of the University Museum.
