Description and construction details

I have just received the graphic construction of the flag of Congo - Kinshasa which they made for that government
  • proportions: 3/2
  • height of the big star = 3 times height of a small star
  • colours:
    • blue field: Pantone 286C
    • yellow stars: Pantone 109C

It may be approximated that the small stars each inscribed circles 1/7th of the hoist and with offset from upper and lower edge being haf of that size. The big star's circle is then 3/7ths. One also wonders where exactly lies the big star: in the center of the flag or in the center of the solid blue part of it? I'd say in the exact center of the flag, so slightly nearer to the small stars than to the fly edge.
