The Columbia University Club flag is a white "C" on light blue. Beware: University flags change frequently, for special occasions and the like.

Here are links to images of two flags of Columbia U. subdivisions:
1- Columbia College, which is the main undergraduate division of Columbia University www.college.columbia.edu/cct/jul_aug07/images/columbia_flag.jpg, in context at www.college.columbia.edu/cct/jul_aug07/quads3.php. The flag is based on the university's flag, but has a gold crown on light blue, instead of a white crown, and the crown's base is arched. Below the crown are gold numerals 1754 in small print. Above the crown is written Columbia and beneath the crown and 1754 is College- these are in large print but a mid-blue color. An example, in blue, of the arched crown and 1754 can be seen at the top left of www.college.columbia.edu/cct/jul_aug07/quads3.php and a smaller example in gold at the top of www.college.columbia.edu/index.php.
2- Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences - www.columbia.edu/images/slideshow/cu_home_laptop_fu.jpg.
The flag is based on the university's flag, but the crown is dark blue on light blue, not white on light blue, and there are a pair of hammers placed in saltire behind the crown (hammers are line drawings in dark blue)- an example of the emblem can be seen in the background at www.engineering.columbia.edu or at the top left of www.engineering.columbia.edu/about_seas.

from Columbia University website
The Haitian Students Association of Columbia University has a flag graphic at their web page. The original file name says "HSA_Flag" and it certainly looks like one, but at this point I don't know if it actually exists in cloth form, or only digital. The flag has a background of 7 stripes, 4 blue and 3 red, and a white arched crown placed upon the 5 middle stripes.
