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 proportions.

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.

No, because red is only part of white in a beam of light (along with blue and green). Otherwise white means an absence of color.
