For international organizations, the use of flags helps to offset language barriers. When the flags of organizations such as the United Nations, NATO, the European Union, the Red Cross or the Maltese Order are raised, there is no doubt which organization is represented.
In addition to the international organizations mentioned before, there’s a lot of youth, religious, political and charitable organizations in Lithuania, which also have their own flags.
Organizational flags are often raised with the flags of one or more countries. Normally, same sized flags are raised in such cases, regardless of what flag dimensions are specified in the flag protocols or regulations. However, in each case customer sets exact dimensions of the flag.
