The flag of UNESCO show its logo in white on UN blue, akin to most other organizations of the UNO system. The logo is a stylized Ancient Greek temple portico, with three stairs steps, seven columns and a pediment, the columns being the letters "UNESCO" in a condensed (sans serif) typeface set very loosely.

Jean Illel is a French poet and designer, currently President of the Club of Poets and Artists at UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). On 10 December 1998, for the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Illel presented the Universal Flag of Peace and Solidarity, a flag horizontally divided black-white-red-yellow.
I have not found any reference to this flag on the UNESCO website. Therefore, I believe Illel's flag has remained unofficial until now.

Note the similarity with the flag of the Miccosukee Indian tribe flag in USA.
