Overview

"ISESCO (Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) was established by the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in May 1979. ISESCO is one of the largest international Islamic organizations and specializes in the fields of education,science, and culture.
The idea first took shape in the minds of the leaders of the Islamic renaissance movement at the dawning of a new age with the awakening of Muslim Ummah. Since the middle of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the prospect of creating such an organization entertained the highest hopes of many reformers and leaders who called for the achievement of Muslim reunification and orderly action in order to serve the best interests of the Islamic nation. This initiative was also set as one of the main objectives of Islamic unity since it was first projected and reaffirmed in its new formulation during the sixth decade of the 20th century. This idea finally took a concrete form and the dream became reality during the Ninth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers (held in Dakar - Senegal, 24-28 April 1978). In its Resolution No. 9/9-C related to the recommendations of the First International Conference on Islamic Education. The Tenth Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers (held in Fez - Kingdom of Morocco, 8-12 May 1979) confirmed the above recommendation in its Resolution relating to the establishment of an International Islamic Organization for Education, Science and Culture."

The logo of ISESCO, the "Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization," shown above, is used on a white field as a flag. However, a photo shows an ISESCO flag which is all green with the logo in black outline, except for the central yellow disc (which features a different style of calligraphy than the one on the logo shown above.)
