The flag of Profamilia features the organization's logo centered on a white field, as seen in photographs. The flags displayed behind the conference participants are, from left to right, the national flag of the Dominican Republic (with coat of arms), what appears to be the EU flag, the flag of the Attorney General's Office, the Profamilia flag, and the flag of the National Police (no coat of arms, no stars). The Profamilia logo includes four filled circles - two blue and two green - and two sweeping blue arcs emanating from the circles. Stretching from the circles toward the fly in blue letters is the word "profamilia," all lowercase. Below the logo is the organization's motto, "¡Por una vida sana!" (For a healthy life!)

About the Organization

According to the Google translation of the organization's website, the Asociación Dominicana Pro-Bienestar de la Familia (Dominican Association for Family Welfare, Profamilia) is "a pioneer NGO in sexual health and reproductive health." The organization was founded in 1966 as an outgrowth of the Society of Friends of Family Planning "to promote and educate about the importance of family planning and facilitate access to contraception" mainly in urban areas.
