Presentation of İHH

İHH is an international Turkish NGO acting in more than hundred countries all over the world. Officially established in 1995, IHH provides humanitarian relief into areas of war and conflict. It has consultative membership status in the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
The foundation was established during the war in Bosnia to help war victims. After the war, IHH continued its activities in other regions with permanent activities.

Flag of İHH

Flags of İHH are shown on a photo captioned "International activists chant pro-Gaza slogans and wave Palestinian and Turkish flags during the official ceremony for delivering aid to Gaza in Gaza City, Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010."

The two versions of the flag differ in:
1. Two small Turkish flags in the upper hoist and fly;
2. The color of the ring and other elements - green vs. a kind of pale gold;
3. The arrangement/color of the text parts of the logo - the IHH is rotated 90 deg. and the bottommost line ("Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief") is either pale gold/black;
4. The presence/absecne of the organization's URL below the emblem.

The emblem is a "damaged" black outlined globe with a dove's head protruding into the lower right quarter, topped with the red letters "İ.H.H." and surrounded by a green UN wreath, in turn bracketed by a what looks like a parenthesis.

based on photo

Based on, a 3rd version [c. Oct. 2022] of the flag for the "Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief" (an NGO in Turkey/Turkiye) in that while it retains the similar central logo, the semi-surrounding gold-colored "ring" is now missing, in its center the earlier "globe" was black and now it is gold-colored, and the "iHH" identification below the logo is different and more pronounced in larger script in green ink (rather than being gold in earlier versions).

The caption is misleading. The photo used to illustrate the article published in October 2022 is a screen capture that can be traced to> to the original publication (no longer available) dated 20 November 2020.
What is featured on the flag is the current logo of the organization, with the lettering (in Turkish) moved beneath the graphic emblem.
