"CISV International was founded in 1950 by Doris Twitchell Allen and aims to educate and inspire action for a more just and peaceful world. Children’s International Summer Villages (CISV) was registered as a non-profit corporation in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1950. The first Village programme was held in Cincinnati in 1951, bringing together young people from Austria, Great Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, Norway, Sweden and USA. The organisation operates international educational programmes on an annual basis to bring together participants from member countries. CISV also operates in smaller communities through its around 200 local Chapters in 70 countries."

The Flag

The flag displays the logo (composed of a world, surrounded by two laurel wreaths and seven people on top holding hands) in blue outline in the middle over a white horizontal flag, as seen here.
The current organization's logo in use since 2006, is a bit different. Hence, the flag described is most likely the previous design, in which one can clearly see two children's silhouette, as well as two youngsters with hats (representing peasants) and in the middle, a man's silhouette. The old logo is seen here.
"The current logo and its building global friendship slogan have been introduced into official use as part of a 2006 large-scale upgrading of the organization's visual identity. In addition, a set of rules for using the visual elements, colors, logos and fonts. The logo has been developed in many variants - for each National Association, Promotional Association and Educational Program of CISV"
