I visited Shanghai Expo on Aug 13th. They have the Expo white flag charged with the logo in green and its name in black. The logo is stylized Chinese character 坤 of  坤穷 Expo and 2010. An image was drawn by Kazutaka Nishiura based on my photo.

 I've been trying to find a good image of the Shanghai 2010 expo flag, but the best ones I found so far these: image 1 and image 2
I guess together they include the flag's complete design, so I hope someone will be able to make something out of it, though it would have been nice to have a better source. Anyone else?
The latter also has a line of text at the bottom, I don't know whether that's relevant to the expo, though, or whether it refers specifically to the ice breaker, or may to flags in promotional use. Still, that would make it a flag variant, I guess.
I include two lower quality images for those who don't see the web pages: 
Shanghai 2010 Expo flag at Expo flag raising.
Shanghai 2010 Expo flag aboard the Snow Dragon.

The inscription placed under logo on the second image means: Expo 2010 Shanghai China in Chinese. (Official site of this Expo:

It rather reads "China 2010 year Shanghai Expo", though with 2010 in Arabian digits.
I'm not sure what the status of that version was, though. More for internal Chinese usage, perhaps, while the officially used one is more internationally oriented?
