The flag of INEFI features the agency's logo centered on a white field. The logo has a blue rendition of the Greek statue Discobolus, the Discus Thrower, with a blue ring representing the motion of his arm as he spins and throws. Below the figure are blue and red letters spelling the agency's acronym. Taken with the white field, the colors represent the colors of the national flag. A photograph showing the INEFI flag with the national flag and the Ministry of Education flag can be seen online here.
