Background

With approx. 5000 speakers, Ido is nowadays one of maybe six or seven “living artificial languages”. It can be said that Ido is a French-flavoured version of Esperanto (although there are a lot of other differences). The Ido movement has not, to best of knowledge, grown noticeably since its creation in 1907 as a “schism” within Esperanto.

Current flag

According to Rodríguez [rod97], the motto was later changed to "LINGUO INTERNACIONA UNIVERSALA" («International Universal Language»), and three of the star’s points were reduced, the longer alternating with the shorter, one longer pointing upwards. It’s sometimes said that the six pointed star stands for an “upgrade” of Esperanto’s five pointed star, but I have no solid support for this on — only, as said, the origin of the language and it’s own name present it as an “offspring” of Esperanto…

In Panorama in interlingua 2/1991: p.16 “Ab le archivo” [ial91a] black and white symbols of constructed languages from «our archive» (probably the image sources as for [rod97]?), which I quote: (dates are probably language publishing, not symbol creation, judging from the Esperanto example): «Ido, 1907, stella azur» and «nover version ab 1980»: both versions as in [rod97], said to be pre- and post-1980.

Ido Flag, 1907
image by António Martins, 04 Jun 1999

The six pointed star was used for the first time in 1907 in a seal like device. According to Rodríguez [rod97], this star had the word "Ido" in blue letters, was equalpointed and laid on a blue circle, around which a white ring read "LINGUO INTERNACIONA DI LA DELEGITARO" (meaning «International language of the delegation», refering to a 1907 interlinguistics conference where the language was first presented mentioned — see above). I don’t know if the earlier version was used on flags. My source shows the typeface to be the one I used, Arial Rounded (or very similar). I made the letters black to conform the refered image found on the web.

Article [ial91a] says this to be the pre-1980 version of the emblem.
