I have labelled these two attached images as CACI (one
and two) because of the initials of the event in which I saw them, the "Primera
Cumbre de Autoridades Centrales en Materia de Adopción Internacional" (First
Summit of Central Authorities in charge of International Adoption), an event
held in Medellín between May 29 and 30, 2013, with the purpose of analyzing the
challenges of this practice worldwide.
The event was organized by the ICBF the local authority in charge of this in the host country (Colombia).
In this video, (source: Hora 13 Noticias, local news), one can see a desktop flag (1:08) which seems to show the logo of the summit.

This white desk flag in front of
that lady is flag of HCCH (Hague Conference/Conférence de La Haye).
The Hague Conference on Private International Law is an intergovernmental organisation, the purpose of which is "to work for the progressive unification of the rules of private international law". It was formed in 1893 and is headquartered in the Hague. Official website of this organization: http://www.hcch.net/
There is a better visible image of that flag: at this site.
Its logo consists of blue latitude lines and HCCH abbreviation placed under the lines.
However, the Permanent Bureau of HCCH uses an other flag which also white but a large light blue panel at hoist wears the latitudes, and abbreviation placed vertical next to fly-side of blue panel.

Searching for further information on the organization you mention, when I
looked up at the
Member States section of the HCCH I didn't find Colombia
as a Member State de jure. So, to me at least, it is a bit weird that a
non-Member can host an international congress on the subject (even if it has the
status of an Observer State).
