Symbols

The statute (at http://cisv.it/verde/presentazione.html) defines in Art. 15 the symbols:
"Articolo 15. Gli emblemi. – Il CISV dispone di propri simboli: lo stemma, la bandiera e la coccarda. Lo stemma in scudo ovato a bordo d’oro è di verde, alla “V” d’oro movente dalla punta e accompagnata in capo da una foglia d’edera dello stesso. La bandiera sociale è inquartata in verde (1° e 4°) e in rosso (2° e 3°) da una croce attraversante bianca, caricata in centro, all’intersezione dei bracci, dello stemma suddetto. La coccarda unisce i colori italiani a quelli sociali ed è verde-giallo-rosso-bianco-verde. Detti simboli non possono essere usati privatamente in nome dell’Associazione senza la dovuta autorizzazione del Presidente. Possono comparire sulla carta intestata solo in lettere ufficiali. Il Presidente dispone di propria bandiera ed è il solo autorizzato a usarla. Essa consiste in un drappo bianco con in centro lo stemma sociale. "

(my translation:

The 1997 rosette (http://www.cisv.it/coccar3.gif) consisted instead of a yellow-green ribbon with two tricolor ribbon tails". This one was also made by Wanda Ziggioto. The cockades ended involuntarily to characterize the different editions of our meetings. In fact, Ms. Ziggioto recalls that, in packaging them, she did not think of a specific symbol for the conference, but a simple badge for CISV members, on the theme of social colors. There were three different rosettes because there was no official model.
