Flag of the Regional Council

Region Île-de-France recently adopted a new logotype, looking like a simplification of the previous one, which had been adopted in 2000.
I could get from the Regional Council a new flag they just printed, white, with the logotype on the center. The logotype is all red and has kept the eight-pointed "star" of the previous logotype.

According to a wire by AFP (Agence France Presse) dated 22/09/00, 18h34, the Regional Council of Île-de-France changed its logotype and flag.
The former red-white-blue flower, which had been created in 1976, has been abandoned, because it was only a geographical symbol of the departements, and not a symbol of a Region whose main aim is preparing the future. The new logotype is a blue whirling spiral with an eight-pointed star, standing for the eight departments of the Region and Europe.

I have seen the flag of the Regional Council of Île-de-France hoisted over the Lycée (High School) Fénelon in Paris. The field of the flag was blue and the letters white, making the flag much more visible than in its official version.
