Description of the flag

the flag design is confirmed (except for the lettering) by an actual flag photo. An important detail is that the scrolls extend each a tip on over the poles.

The emblem can also be seen on the World Tourism Organization website.

The logo of the World Tourism Organization was changed. According to A/19/10(h) (2011), the logo was changed in 1998. Thus, the flag was changed as well. However, according to that same document, the basic design of the flag is still the emblem on a solid field with no text. A physical copy of the flag can be seen here.
