Overview

The International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) is the international governing body for the sport of wheelchair rugby. The IWRF is a volunteer-run organization that supervises the international competitions and development of wheelchair rugby. It was created in 1993 as a sport section of the International Stoke Mandeville Wheelchair Sports Federation (ISMWSF), and became an independent sport federation on January 1, 2010.

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.
