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 flags that could represent the 15 ACC universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective history.

It's hard not to recognize the nautically-themed nature of this flag design right off the bat. And for a school found on the shores of Coral Gables nicknamed the Hurricanes with a giant ibis for a mascot, it fits Miami, to say the least.

According to u/toms47, the overall design was inspired by the hurricane warning flags you can find flying on the beaches to indicate incoming inclement weather, while the two diagonally-split sections represent the Coral Gables and actual city of Miami.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hurricanes are still set to return to battle Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Temple Owls at home in Miami Gardens, Florida.
