Students returning to Old Dominion University this week for the fall semester will be in for a surprise when they see the clusters of new ODU flags lining the median on Hampton Boulevard.

The flagpoles, topped with golden balls, and flags bearing the ODU Monarch mascot and the name of the university are being put up in the middle of Hampton Boulevard at four locations - Bolling Avenue and 49th, 47th and 43rd streets.

Designed by Karen Smallets, assistant director of university publications, the flags will help "define the boundaries of the university and create a sense of place," said ODU Marketing Coordinator Maria Ferguson.

The flags will be lit from below at night.
