The International Biathlon Union is the international umbrella organization of all organizations representing the sport of biathlon and those who have an interest in the sport. The IBU was founded in 1993 as independent association under the umbrella of the UIPMB alongside the UIPM (Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne). The IBU separated from UIPMB in 1998. Since that time, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has recognized the IBU and the UIPM as two International Olympic Sports Organizations. Its Headquarters is in Salzburg, Austria.
The IBU holds all rights pertaining to Biathlon World Championships (senior, junior, and youth), Biathlon World Cups, Biathlon Continental Championships, and Biathlon Continental Cups.

Just in case anyone hasn't noticed this, I'll point out that those stripes are the colours of the Olymic rings, and in the same order as on the Olympic flag.
