Overview

FINA was founded in 1908, and now has 171 countries affiliated with it. The flag is 1:2; a light blue-white-light blue tribar. In the upper light blue tribar a white world map in two parts near hoist. The flag was introduced in 1908.


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.
For FINA: PMS 3015 blue, 1235 yellow. The vertical flag is simply the horizontal version turned 90 degrees clockwise.

Colors (PMS): Process Blue
Remarks: FINA changed emblem in 2008. Probably there exists a new flag.

World Aquatics Championships - Shanghai 2011

On 16 July 2011 were inaugurated the FINA World Aquatics Championships in Shanghai, China PR, at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center. The flags parade was in alphabetical order after the country's codes. The only exceptions  were Italy which marched first, and China which marched last as host. Ghana and Kuwait marched under the FINA flag Netherlands Antilles (AHO) still exits, at least to FINA. It marched under its flag in second placed behind Italy  and before Albania. Oceania and Europe only missed one of its members each, Samoa (SAM) and Gibraltar (GIB) respectively. I counted 181 contries and "regions" as called by FINA, perhaps it is a new record. In Rome 2009, GIB, TCN, IVB, took part. But I don't know the exact number of countries.
