The inner circle contains the National flags of the four member countries, where the exact colors and proportions of the national flags should be reproduced. The central circle contains a map of the Balkan countries where the whole territories of the four BMMC countries are colored in blue, while the rest of the Balkan countries are only outlined. The background of the map is pink. In a central position, there is the Hypocratic symbol representing a stick and a yellow snake”.
