Overview

The Association of National Olympic Committees was created during a constitutive general assembly held on 26 and June 27, 1979 in San Juan, first convened under the name IXth General Assembly of National Olympic Committees (NOCs). Its ancestor, the first “General Assembly of the NOCs”, was held in Rome on September 30, 1st and October 2, 1965. Established initially in Paris, the headquarters of ANOC has since May 2010 based in Lausanne. (Source)

Each NOC adopts an emblem, and presumably adopts a flag as well. The website of the IOC lists all NOCs, including their emblems. Below descriptions of a few known NOC flags are given. In general, NOCs will probably form their flag by placing their emblem on an Olympic white background.

NOCs are all members of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC), which was established in June 1979 and is also split among five continental associations:
- Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (black ring)
- Pan American Sports Organization (red ring)
- Olympic Council of Asia (yellow ring)
- European Olympic Committees (green ring)
- Oceania National Olympic Committees (red ring)

The logo features each regional Olympic Committee association/federation's logo inside a ring, as seen here.

The Flag

The Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC, ACNO in French) changed their logo on May 20th, 2014. According to the press release at http://www.acnolympic.org/media-centre/anoc-press-releases/2014/05/anoc-unveils-dynamic-new-logo/, the new logo consists of five ribbons, using the colors from the Olympic Rings, and "reflects the dynamism of the organisation and the universality of its global membership of 204 NOCs" with the way the ribbons form a globe. As such, the flag also changed to use the new logo (example at http://www.acnolympic.org/ImageGen.ashx?image=/media/25293/P1010035.jpg&height=500).

Please note that there are previous emblems of EOC, ANCOA and ONOC (in blue, black and green rings).

Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa logo is shown at Wikipedia and at official website; direct link: http://www.africaolympic.org/Anoca-logo.gif. Sadly, I could not find a flag.
According to National Olympic Committee Wikipedia page, Africa is rather blue, black being Asia. (And yellow the Americas, red for Oceania, and green for Europe.)
Anyway, it would be interesting, vexillologically, if these five colors were used on the flags of the continental or national associations.

Alas, if falls unto my lot to point out the blog, where the image occurs, showing they do use it on a flag.
(Oh, and then ANOC president, Mario Vázquez Raña, is in the picture too.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 19 April 2012

The organization's flag is shown on  their website white with logo and acronyms in black below. No large image of the logo is available.
Eugene Ipavec, 22 April 2012

The lower edges seem to confirm "ACNO" being used at the bottom of the flag.

[ACNO emblem]

This picture from http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/the-olympic-and-chinese-national-flags-flutter-outside-a-news-photo/80558922#the-olympic-and-chinese-national-flags-flutter-outside-a-hotel-where-picture-id80558922 shows that for the older ANOC flag, there was no text underneath. As such, I was able to find a vector image from https://www.olympic.org/olympic-solidarity
and turned it into an image.

[ACNO flag behind President Putin]
image by H B, 12 May 2012

I am sending you also a picture of Putin standing by what seems to be an Olympic flag. I did some search but coud not find it at the International Olypmic Commmitte webpages or among the Russian sports flags.
H B, 12 May 2012

This is flag of Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) behind the President. It is not a Russian related Olympic flag.
