National Flag. CSW/CSW 2:3
I'll jump over description directly to the construction details given in Album: (10+1+10+1+10):(21+27).
This image has smaller emblem in the triangle then the one in Album, where it seems somewhat like inscribed in a circle of 13 units or so (meaninng the diameter of the circle circumscribing the star).
This flag superseded not only the national flag of 1975, but also the red warflag
And now the notes. Graham Bartram has the flag in ratio 5:8, while Album 2000 has it as 2:3. [vdv00] agrees with Album. I guess that 5:8 might be a "relict" from previous flag, which is in [smi82] given as ratio 5:8~. Certainly a thing to look into.
Following the construction details given in Album for the width of stripes,
I have gained a flag image that has white fimbroations considerably thinner
then I was expecting to. unless I have messed up something, it seems that
no vex-book has the fimbriations as thin as 1/10 of stripes. It's hard
to measure such small sizes in Album 2000, but even there the white stripes
seem to be wider then 1/10 of the, say, black stripe.
