Overview

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the governing body of world tennis, made up of 210 national tennis associations or corresponding organizations of independent countries or territories.
It was established as the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF) by 12 national associations meeting at a conference in Paris, France in 1913, and discussions on rules and policy continued through 1923. It was at this time that two compromises were reached: the title "world championships" would be abolished and wording would be "for ever in the English language." In 1924 it became the officially recognized organization with authority to control lawn tennis throughout the world, with official "LTF Rules of Tennis". In 1977 it dropped the word "lawn" from its title, recognizing that most tennis was no longer played on grass.

Flag at the London 2012 Olympics

The protocol manual for the London 2012 Olympics (Flags and Anthems Manual London 2012 [loc12]) provides recommendations for flag designs. Each international federation and international paralympics federation was sent an image of the flag, including the PMS shades, for their approval by LOCOG. Once this was obtained, LOCOG produced a 60 x 90 cm version of the flag for further approval. So, while these specs may not be the official version of each flag, they are certainly what the international federation and international paralympics federation believed the flag to be.
