Shinshu University has five campuses and eight other fscilities spread throughout Nagano Prefecture, with its administrative seat located in Matsumoto.
Ron Lahav, 18 April 2008 shows the flag just after mid-page, esp. the first one (clickable). Caption, translated: "The official flag of Shinsu University. The symbol had only been determined on last year (I thought)…" That would have been 2006, then.

On a green field, a stylized white bird-shape flying towards the hoist above the name ‘SHINSHU UNIVERSITY’ also in white. (Flag neatly held in place with little triangular mounting elements, seen before on photos taken in Japan.)

The University homepage showing the flag states:

Shinshu University consists of eight faculties: Arts, Education, Economics, Science, Medicine, Engineering, Agriculture, and Textile Science and Technology. All of these faculties offer both undergraduate and graduate courses. More than 1,000 full-time academic staff are engaged in teaching and research, and at present approximately 11,000 students are enrolled. Almost 400 of these students are overseas students from a wide variety of different countries. The University's five campuses are located in the cities of Matsumoto, Nagano City, Ueda and Ina in the region known as Shinshu or Nagano Prefecture.

The university is a national one, founded in 1949, and that Shinshu is the former name of Nagano region.
