Is it correct to say that the color RED is actually over fifty percent of the USA flag surface area as white is not a color but a combination of
colors, and one third of white is composed of the color RED ?
Only the USA flags that are procured by the USA executive branch of the government have exact definitions and exact proportions given, and are defined
by Executive Order 10834. All other USA flags may vary considerably as to the length of the union, the size of the stars, and the overall
An expert on the USA executive flag claims that "the red comprises 41.5 percent of the area of a 1 x 1.9 flag, while the white, including stars (but
not the heading) is approximately 40.9 percent of the area, so the red and white take up about the same, though the red is slightly ahead".
Is the correct percentage of RED on the USA 1 x 1.9 executive flag derived from the following equation ?
RED % = 41.5 + ( ( 40.9) / 3 ) = 55.133.
