The logo and, as it is rectangular, presumably the flag, of Crown Agents, an international consultancy. A black and white version can be seen in the 21 April 2001 issue of The Economist where they advertise for someone to fill a position. The color version is from their web site, www.crownagents.com .
I cannot decipher the curious logo in the upper hoist. It does not appear to me to be a crown, and though it looks like the letter K in a back-to-back design, there is no K in the name of the company. (Perhaps the founder?) It may also be said to look like the Cyrillic "zh", but that's even more far-fetched.

It might perhaps be two superimposed arrow-heads, one pointing up and one pointing down? The original Crown Agents were appointed by the Colonial Secretary to act as agents in London for British colonies and protectorates. I don't think they had a badge or emblem, but government property used to be identified by being marked with an arrow-head. Many colonies ordered their flags through the Crown Agents.
