The sun construction is best shown in the national Coat of Arms (featured on the presidential flag). The sun relative construction details are preserved on all flags. The COA is blue disk with radius three times the radius of the white sun disk concentric with it. The rays reach the edges of an imaginary circle double the diameter of the sun disk. The rays are constructed as a 12 pointed star, lines connecting every 5th vertex (i.e. star shapness equals 4 in mathematical language, or density equals 5). The diameter of the disk forming the blue fimbriation between the sun disk and the rays is 17/15 of the diameter of the sun disk (i.e. the width of the blue ring is 1/15 of the diameter of the sun disk).
