The Citadel Alumni Association

What does it mean?

Triangular field
This represents the three official names of the alumni association: Association of Graduates (1852-1934), Association of Citadel Men (1934-1997) and The Citadel Alumni Association (1997-present).

Gold Stars
A traditional symbol of excellence at the college, these stars represents the small group of alumni who gathered on Nov. 19, 1852 to form the first association.

Blue and white stripes
The official colors of the college, the stripes and triangle converge to form the flag just as the college and the alumni association have always come together for common causes.

Red field
The triangular field is red to acknowledge the "Big Red" colors of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets and its close relationship with the alumni association.
