The Flag

The flag of UNESCO show its logo in white on UN blue, akin to most other organizations of the UNO system. The logo is a stylized Ancient Greek temple portico, with three stairs steps, seven columns and a pediment, the columns being the letters "UNESCO" in a condensed (sans serif) typeface set very loosely.

Universal Flag of Peace and Solidarity

[Flag of Universal Flag of Peace and Solidarity] by Ivan Sache, 12 August 2002

Jean Illel is a French poet and designer, currently President of the Club of Poets and Artists at UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). On 10 December 1998, for the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Illel presented the Universal Flag of Peace and Solidarity, a flag horizontally divided black-white-red-yellow.

I have not found any reference to this flag on the UNESCO website. Therefore, I believe Illel's flag has remained unofficial until now.

Great spas of Europe

[Flag of UNESCO] image by Olivier Touzeau, 19 September 2021

The Great Spa Towns of Europe are eleven famous spa towns which represent the heyday of the European spa phenomenon, rooted in antiquity and having a global influence – they gained their highest expression between 1700 and 1930. (source: https://www.greatspatownsofeurope.eu). The 11 spa towns are: Baden bei Wien, Spa, Františkovy Lázne, Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázne, Vichy, Bad Ems, Baden-Baden, Bad Kissingen, Montecatini Terme, Bath. In 1987 the City of Bath in the UK was inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO. Bath therefore became the first spa town in the world to be included on the list. By the 2000’s spa towns in Belgium, the Czech Republic and Germany were also seeking this prestigious inscription and UNESCO, supported by its advisory body ICOMOS, suggested that a global study be undertaken "to explore the potential of a serial nomination being developed to express the outstanding universal value of the European spa phenomenon." An international conference took place in Baden-Baden in 2010, called “European Health Resorts and Fashionable Spas of the 19th Century”. A working group was established by the Mayors of 16 spa towns to carry out the proposed study. Seven countries (Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom) got together at ministerial level to cooperate and established an International Steering Group (ISG) to guide the Mayors through this complex process. A further group of independent international experts was also appointed by the ISG to prepare a nomination dossier for submission to UNESCO. This project and the name of the series of spa towns became known as the Great Spas of Europe. Eventually the experts and the ISG recommended that 11 of the 16 spa towns were the best representative group to illustrate the outstanding universal value of the European spa phenomenon and a nomination was submitted to UNESCO in January 2019. The Great Spa Towns of Europe was inscribed on the World Heritage List at the 44th World Heritage Committee meeting in Fuzhou, China. The name of the property was changed to the Great Spa Towns of Europe, previously the Great Spas of Europe. During a meeting in Vichy, France of the mayors of the 11 towns in 2019, a white flag with the (textual) logo of the Great spas of Europe could be spotted: there are also white flags with the names of the towns, their logo in small at the top and the logo of the Great spas of Europe at the bottom have been created, such as Vichy and - Bath for example.
