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 12 Pac-12 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 yellow letter "O" represents Oregon, while the wavy line at the top represents Eugene's Willamette River, which forms the northern border of the university's campus.

For a program that has become synonymous with extravagant and detailed uniform design combinations in recent years, largely thanks to Oregon alumnus and highly involved booster Nike co-founder/chairman emeritus Phil Knight, this rather simplistic design is refreshing look for the Ducks.

Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ducks are still set to return to action Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the North Dakota State Bison at home in Eugene, Oregon.
