About the organization 

Caribbean Development Bank

The Caribank (CDB) is a regional financial institution which assists Caribbean nations in financing social and economic programs in its member countries. It was established by an Agreement signed on October 18, 1969, in Kingston, Jamaica, and entered into force on January 26, 1970. The Bank came into existence for the purpose of contributing to the harmonious economic growth and development of the member countries in the Caribbean and promoting economic cooperation and integration among them, having special and urgent regard to the needs of the less developed members of the region. The permanent headquarters of the bank is located at Wildey, St. Michael, Barbados. There are no other offices of the bank. The headquarters serves all of the regional borrowing member countries with staff recruited from its members.

There was an older version pre-2007. I have tried to find a photo of it, but I only have my old notes. Attached is my version of the pre-2009 CDB flag. I am not sure what year it was adopted.

The first flag of the Caribbean Development Bank was this organization's flag until 2007 when it adopted a new logo.  The old flag was the old CDB seal which was a gray map of the region with the lat. & long. lines and a white sea.  The seal had a color ring around it, which looked like the same color as the edge of the seal, centered on a blue background. The blue is the same as the current flag. They should both be the same color. It has a typical 1970's style about it.
