The gear wheel in the first one seems closer to the whole wheel of the Rotary Club (though I confess I have no idea at all what that might imply) than to the interrupted wheel of the ILO emblem.
It also reminds me of the national emblem of Italy, the "seal" of the Italian Republic. The cogwheel symbolizes industriousness and stregth through cooperation (many cogs coming together to form a mechanism).

I type the following with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek and only as a cheap joke (not a cheap shot), but with over 50 governments in Italy since the end of WWII, I'm surprised to see a symbol of cooperation in the Italian emblem.
