The foundation was established during the war in Bosnia to help war victims. After the war, IHH continued its activities in other regions with permanent activities.

Flags of İHH are shown on a photo captioned "International activists chant pro-Gaza slogans and wave Palestinian and Turkish flags during the official ceremony for delivering aid to Gaza in Gaza City, Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010."
The two versions of the flag differ in:
1. Two small Turkish flags in the upper hoist and fly;
2. The color of the ring and other elements - green vs. a kind of pale gold;
3. The arrangement/color of the text parts of the logo - the IHH is rotated 90 deg. and the bottommost line ("Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief") is either pale gold/black;
4. The presence/absecne of the organization's URL below the emblem.
The emblem is a "damaged" black outlined globe with a dove's head protruding into the lower right quarter, topped with the red letters "İ.H.H." and surrounded by a green UN wreath, in turn bracketed by a what looks like a parenthesis.
