This flag carries a design that closely resembles the logo of the World Bank, and
is not similar to the logo of any other UN organization, so probably is the flag
of the World Bank or one of its components.

The IMF and World Bank do have flags, but I don't think they are ever flown at headquarters. Where I have seen them displayed publicly is on cars
carrying IMF/WB officials in charge of their offices in countries where this is customary.

Chiefs of resident missions usually
have official cars. When the Chief of Mission uses the car to attend official
functions, the World Bank flag is displayed. Displaying a flag indicates to
police or guards that the diplomat is on official business and should be
permitted to pass. It also permits the aide receiving the car to know who has
arrived. The flag is displayed only when the Chief of Mission is actually in the
car and on the way to or from an official function.

The flag I have seen is white with the logo in light blue (close or the same as
the color in the United Nations Flag). The
World Bank website shows the logo as
a square centered in the flag. I have only seen the flags produced as limo flags
