I don't see the university of Haifa refusing to raise the flag but that has no more meaning to the arabs than Hatikvah. The flag menorah is a Jewish symbol and the flag is not just a Jewish symbol but its based on the, flag of pre state Haganah ( a zionist organization that did the fighting to make Israel possible ). I would have thought that to the arabs thats worse than singing about a return to zion ( Jerusalem ) but the university has never had any problem with waving the flag.
