We don't have a flag in the sense that we don't fly one over our building.
Our flag is a rather more modest affair table top one that we may "fly" at
conferences. It consists of the blue version of the ISO logo, without
background. I include an example of this logo. Our logo is just the word ISO
superimposed on the globe.

I just came across a flag, supposed to be a variant of the ISO. The flag,
mentions "(the) City's Wastewater Division Becomes State Forerunner with
Environmental Management Certification - ISO 14001:2004 Certified", talking
about the government's Division of Tallahassee.
The flag most likely reads "ISO 14001" on top, and "REGISTERED" on the bottom, on blue capital letters on a white horizontal background, as seen in this other picture:
However on the first mentioned picture, one can see a logo on the bottom right, which I cannot identify.

Rather than representing the ISO, this flag communicate the presence of an
environmental management system conforming with ISO 14001, in particular one
that has been registered with NSF International Strategic Registrations. A photo
of the same design at another Tallahassee Water Utility wastewater facility (perhaps
relating to an earlier registration) can be found in
this document. (Tallahassee's Water Utility Wastewater Division 'Goes Green'
with ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Certification/, pp22-24, Florida
Water Resources Journal, May 2008), revealing that the logo in the bottom hoist
is that of NSF - a blue cirle with the white letters 'NSF'.
The flags were presented to the Water Utility along with the certification plaque, and are presumably generally provided by NSF when they registered a compliant system.
NSF is a non-government organisation, and while we see the flag hoisted by a (local) government utility, I'm sure the flag could equally be given to non-government entities.
(Of course, the ISO is itself not exactly a government organisation.)

If it's similar to the ones at
this page, then it might be a globe.
