Description of Colorado Flag


As per the the Colorado Flag Law, the field is made of 3 horizontal stripes of equal width, that are at right angles to the flag pole. There are 2 blue stripes separated by a white stripe at the center. This blue color is of the same shade used for the flag of the USA. At the pole end of the flag there is a circular, red colored letter C. The letter is placed at a distance of one-fifth of the entire length of the flag from the pole end. The diameter of this letter is about the two-thirds the breadth of the Colorado Flag. The width of both the inner and the outer lines of the letter has to adhere to some measurement specifications too. The center of this letter is colored with a golden shade.
