A description of the university flag and logo, which is displayed on the flag, and also a color photograph of the flag, can all be seen at
The university flag is almost identical to the Papal or Vatican flag, with the exception that the University Logo is positioned where the Papal tiara and Crossed Keys are on the Papal flag.

On July 31 I saw this image from the local newspaper El Ciudadano  showing three flags, from left to right: UFE 1, Ecuador, UFE 2. Since the news was reported by the newspaper in Quito, Pichincha Province, I thought that one of the two UFE's might be of the city of Quito, or the Pichincha Province, but clearly it is not the case. The news was a conference by the Ecuadorian Procurador (Ombudsman) regarding the process of money laundering in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Then again, checked the Amsterdam flag, and again, it does not match any of the two UFE's in the picture mentioned above.
However, looking at the government entity mentioned in the article, Procuraduría General del Estado (States's General Ombudsman), its symbols do not match either of the two UFE's.
The last entity mentioned in the article is the CONCLA (Consejo Nacional contra el Lavado de Activos, National Council Against Money Laundering), so one of the two unidentified flags could be of this government organization, but I am not quite sure.

There's also a pennant, termed an "estandarte," on the same page. Translated: "In the inaugural ceremony of the main building, the archbishop monsignor Manuel de Jesús Serrano Abad blessed the standard, that is a symbol of triangular form with the cross of Santiago, patron of the city and school, which expresses what the university hopes for its members: faith pure and uncontaminated, fidelity to the traditions that it demands, gratitude to conscience as opposed to circumstance of life. The emblem presides over the official acts that are celebrated in the university.
The flag, a bicolor with vertical bands of white and yellow, was approved officially by the University Council on the 13 of June of 1977. Since then it flies on campus every memorial day and every Monday next to the flags of Ecuador and Guayaquil."
