Few sports fans are as loyal and passionate as those in college football. With the dedication to their teams and the passion in heated rivalries, there's a reason fan bases are often referred to as "nations."

With that kind of pride rampant throughout the most competitive college football programs, sometimes it feels like a flag is the only thing missing from these being real nations.

That being said, Reddit user u/toms47 made this leap by designing college football battle flags that could represent the 14 SEC universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.

According to u/toms47, the centered sun is a dual representation of the state of Florida's nickname, "The Sunshine State," as well as the University of Florida's status as one of our nation's Space Grant schools. Beyond that status, the wavy blue lines are meant to represent Florida's status as a Sea Grant school, while the orange bars reflect its status as a Land Grant School.

As the premier public university in the Sunshine State, this University of Florida flag design does a wonderful job of capturing some of Florida's most iconic properties too.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gators are still set to return to action Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Eastern Washington Eagles at home in Gainesville, Florida.
