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 approximately 12x15".
