Located in Nishinomiya City Hyogo Prefecture and established in 1948. The embroidered ceremonial flag has purple background with a gold and silver college emblem and silver plant wreath in purple fringe. The college flag has navy blue background with a white emblem and the white kanji college name written horizontally. The college emblem was adopted in 1885, during the reign of the third principal, Ms. Brown. The three leaves of the clover symbolize "body, mind, and spirit," and represent the ideals of the college, which aims to nurture a perfect personality in harmony with these three elements. At first, it was only an outline of three leaves, but in 1905, the current college emblem was established by combining the letters KC, the initials of "Kobe College," within the three leaves.
