A photo shows the flag of the Al-Imaam Saud University (in full, Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University), founded in Riyadh in 1974.

The flag is white with the emblem of the university: a light blue pentagon with a yellow and black border, charged with a mosque with two minarets, surmounted by an open book and the arms of Saudi Arabia (swords and palmetto), all in white. The name of the university (I guess) is written in black Arabic script below the mosque.
The details not visible on the photograph are clearly visible on the emblem shown on the top of the front page of the university website.

The mosque itself is the letter "m".... the white design actually spells out "el-imām". The minarets are both alifs. Rather clever, that.
