In response to an inquiry to the World Trade Organization, we have received the following statement:
The WTO does not have a flag but does have a logo which [was given] to the WTO by
Ms Hortence Mpako Foaleng
Information and Media Relations Division
World Trade Organization
The logo appears on all World Trade Organisation webpages. A link concerning
the logo can be read here: www.wto.org/english/news_e/pres97_e/pr79_e.htm

Neither the IMF nor the World Bank fly any flags on their headquarters buildings in Washington. Also, if you check www.wto.org, you'll see the logo in color, not just white on black.
Photos showing WTO flags can be found at
and http://www.time.com/time/asia/magazine/99/1213/business.madashell.html. All are different, and they are all probably unofficial.

I am not sure if these are flags at all. The two photos do show only parts of
some cloth, not necessarily and not clearly identifiably a flag. The third image
is no photo, but a computer graphic.
