The Flag

"Flag Manual" by the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, 2008.

Flag at the London 2012 Olympics

The protocol manual for the London 2012 Olympics (Flags and Anthems Manual London 2012 [loc12]) provides recommendations for flag designs. Each international federation and international paralympics federation was sent an image of the flag, including the PMS shades, for their approval by LOCOG. Once this was obtained, LOCOG produced a 60 x 90 cm version of the flag for further approval. So, while these specs may not be the official version of each flag, they are certainly what the international federation and international paralympics federation believed the flag to be.
For FIH: PMS 347 light green, 349 dark green, 485 red, 294 blue. The vertical flag is simply the horizontal version turned 90 degrees clockwise.
