Gonfalons

Gonfalons, which are banners hung from crosspieces on poles, have descended from medieval Italy where they were used as symbols of state or office. They have been adopted by many universities and colleges to enhance the ceremonial nature of the commencement exercises and other public events. Plymouth State University has created our own gonfalons with our university colors of dark green and white on the outer nylon panels of each banner. The inner velvet panel of each represents one of our academic departments, using the colors for the academic disciplines as listed under Academic Regalia on the previous page.
