The International Military Sports Council (CISM) is a military organization comparable with the Olympic organization. Its flag consists of a white, blue bordered flag with the CISM logo in the middle. The logo consists a globe surrounded by a band bearing the name of the organization, behind it is a composition consisting of five red rings, a downpointing sword, a golden laurel wreath and short points. It seems that only the vertical version is used.
The flag was used in Zagreb, Croatia, in connection with the 2nd Military World Games (MWG), held from 8 to 17 August 1999. The blue bordered flag seems to be official, but as far as I have noticed, it was only used on opening and closing ceremonies, while on other places (stadiums etc. and in city) the simple white LOBs were used.
