The University of Northampton flies the flag on its website:

The University of Northampton has published a Brand Manual at
See especially p. 5 where the brand is explained: “Incorporation of the ‘N’ for
Northampton and the ‘U’ for university / Movement in central design represents
the River Nene, which flows through both the town and County, and has featured
throughout the institution’s history to illustrate a sense of unification and
connection with our communities”. (As you can see, the red lines are explanatory
only.) Said “movements” traverse a heart-shaped figure, light blue on the left
side and dark blue on the right. To the right of the logo appears the name “THE
UNIVERSITY OF / NORTHAMPTON”
(first line dark blue, place name bigger and light blue). Pantone colours are given on p. 10: Dark blue 294 and Light blue 3135.
A flag is not mentioned, this is where the photo (above) comes in - the first line of words actually appears to be grey.
From the University’s History page:
First university existed 1260-65. Northampton Technical College founded 1932, School of Art 1937; their successors plus College of Education formed Nene College in 1975. Additional colleges incorporated 1993-1997 and named University College Northampton in 1999. University, 2005: two campuses, 10 000 students.

this page we see a heraldic pennant adorning a lectern, the same, as a
by “acol37”, uploaded 12 Jul 2006. It shows a white field with green edge, the
University arms in full colour placed near the top (it is a vertically hung
pennant). The armorial detail can be seen
here. For the arms, see the full

University College arms (precursor), but they appear on the pennant which was in
evidence during a University of Northampton event.
