reported small version
by António Martins-Tuválkin
The Montreal Olympic flag had a white logo on red background. The logo was
created by Georges Huel. It was used on flags, banners and table flags, according
to an article in Vexilla Belgica by François Beaudoin (1982).

There was also another variant in 1:2 with "Montreal 76" underneath the logo.

I checked Souvenir program I have of the 1976 Olympics and the few photgraphy of the flag (including the cover) show it indeed in a 1:2 ratio (without inscription), probably so it would look nice next to the canadian flag. So is the Olympic flag incidently.
As the one I mentioned is based on a photography of an actual one, this variant
might simply exist as table flags, maybe even as the used by the candidacy commitee
