Mediterranean Games flag

I saw this flag of mediterranean games on tv, on the opening ceremony and games of Tunis 2001 Games. Wasn't the flag on FOTW-ws or couldn't I find it, again? I drew the flag according to low-resolution images found on the Internet so please forgive the low-quality image. As far as I know the three rings represent three continents that has coast on the Mediterranean Sea, and the blue color represents the sea.

That's the Mediterranean Games flag indeed. At least the same one was used in 1979 on VIII games held in Split, Croatia (then in Yugoslavia), as could be seen on 1979 Yugoslav post stamps, but probably the emblem (and flag) is older. The wavy pattern of the rings in their lower part is, of course, reminding on the image on wavy sea surface.
