Your first step is to click on the button “Change your team colors.” The pop up shown below will appear. You will be directed to click on the colors of the flag that you wish to change.

You can edit both the black background color and the yellow stripe. Click on the area you want to change, and select a color on the right. When you have successfully changed the flag to match your school colors, click the “Apply Changes” button at the top of the popup window.
