Overview

The International Federation of Gymnastics is the governing body of competitive gymnastics. Its headquarters are in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was founded on July 23, 1881 in Liège, Belgium, making it the oldest international sport organisation. Originally called the European Federation of Gymnastics, it had three member countries - Belgium, France and the Netherlands - until 1921, when non-European countries were admitted, and it was renamed to its current name.

Flag at the London 2012 Olympics

The protocol manual for the London 2012 Olympics (Flags and Anthems Manual London 2012 [loc12]) provides recommendations for flag designs. Each international federation and international paralympics federation was sent an image of the flag, including the PMS shades, for their approval by LOCOG. Once this was obtained, LOCOG produced a 60 x 90 cm version of the flag for further approval. So, while these specs may not be the official version of each flag, they are certainly what the international federation and international paralympics federation believed the flag to be.
