This site and this site
show a Panslavonic flag (flag of WSC). The flag contains Slavic colors (white, blue, and red). I don't know the origin of this flag.

The official language of the World Slavic Congress seems to be Slovio, a
constructed language which is meant to be a kind of "Pan-Slavic Esperanto". In
this language, the name of the organization is Vsezemju Slavju Kongres. Slovio
is being developed entirely via the Internet, as stated at its website:
www.slovio.com and WSC is probably organized
by its speakers, which suggests that the organization probably does operate
mainly, if not entirely, in cyberspace. The flag shown at the WSC website,
however, is not vertical, but horizontal blue-red bicolour with a large white
disc overall, so it must have been changed at
a point of time.
The site also shows many other flag-like images, some of them described as the proposals for a pan-Slavic flag, while some might be the proposals for the flag of Slovio. They all employ pan-Slavic colours and are sometimes charged with the linden leaf or the Glagolitic letter "slovo" (S), which is mentioned at the Slovio website as a modern Pan-Slavic symbol, but is usually, for no known reasons, shown upside- down, which transforms it into the Glagolitic letter "i".
