Description of the flag

The 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics' emblem is a stylized, pentagon-shaped, snowflake and/or maple leaf, made up of five large and five small letters of "C" to symbolize the country of Canada and the city of Calgary, above the Olympic rings.

According to a photo I have the rings are in their five colors, instead all red. Two registered marks are also part of the flag (one below the emblem, left part; other below the rings, right part; both in red).
