During celebration of 50th anniversary of its establishment, the OECD adopted a new logo and it is also used on its new flag. New logo is a blue disc charged with white map of the continents (reducing the size of the Pacific Ocean), and the two green and grey coloured arrowheads point towards the fly (instead of hoist, as it was used on previous flag). The new logo was adopted on 15 December 2010.
