The Flag

Its flag is white with its golden emblem, which consists of Olympic rings superimposed with a letter A.

Nice case of imaginary reverse, here: I saw how the Picasaweb version had a narrow white border around the A, which made it look like it was in front of the rings.
But the curious thing is that on their website they use a different logo. Older versions of the website seem to use the emblem in the flag, though. A change in house style, maybe, but if so: Will the flag be subject to that as well?

Thank you very much for your observation. You are absolutely right, thanking to your sharp eyes.
Regarding the difference between current logo and flag, I haven't found any other visual proof of existence of an other flag with newer logo. However, picture was taken on 09 February 2012, so it doesn't seem to be too old.
