This was a wise choice. I’m guessing they got some push back over the coverage of this story.

Stanford reverses course, approves College Republicans logo with American flag

Stanford University will allow the College Republicans to print on T-Shirts their new logo that incorporates a bold looking elephant imposed on an American flag with the words “Stanford College Republicans,” reversing an earlier decision that denied that design.

“Stanford has decided to reconsider its current policy addressing association of the Stanford name/logo with flags in general,” E.J. Miranda, senior director of media relations, said Sunday in an email to The College Fix. “This specific policy is part of a broader policy that is appropriately intended to avoid associating the Stanford name/logo with specific political perspectives. We now recognize that the specific policy was framed in an overly restrictive manner.”

“As a result of this review, Stanford College Republicans is welcome to use the images of the U.S. flag reflected in the current design of its logos,” Miranda added. “We will also be considering Stanford’s overarching policy on use of flags over the coming weeks.”

This reversal comes after the Stanford College Republicans were recently told their design did not pass muster with the private institution’s trademark office because the image incorporated the American flag.
