Overview

The International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) is an international sports organization that governs sports for athletes with a disability. IWAS is headquartered at Stoke Mandeville Stadium in Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, and is a registered charity. IWAS is the international governing body for wheelchair fencing and until 2010 for wheelchair rugby (now governed by IWRF). IWAS also governs other sport competitions for athletes who use a wheelchair and athletes with amputations, including athletics, cue sports, and lawn bowls. IWAS was formed in 2005.

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.
