List of aspect ratios of national flags

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The following table shows the aspect ratio (height to width ratio) of national flags used by countries and dependencies. Variant flags such as ensigns are listed in the "Alternative flags" column, if they have different proportions from the national flag. Territories without an official flag distinct from that of their controlling country are excluded.

The ratios used most commonly are 2:3, used by 89 of 195 sovereign states, and 1:2, used by 54 sovereign states. Most dependencies and former colonies use the same proportions as their mother countries: all British Overseas Territories use 1:2 ratios, while the flags of most former and current Dutch and French areas have 2:3 proportions.

For comparison, the ratios are also given as a decimal number, which is the flag width divided by its height (e.g. a 2:3 flag has a decimal ratio of 3/2 = 1.5). Flags with irrational ratios have only a decimal approximation, and have the exact form given in the "Notes" column.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The website of the prime minister's office gives a flag with a ratio of 2:3 listed beneath it.
  2. ^ Another page on the website of the Seimas (Lithuanian parliament) says "[the flag's] width to height ratio is 1 to 2", which seems to refer to the flag's ratio before the 2004 amendment to the flag law.
  3. ^ The exact width:height ratio of the flag of Nepal is:
  4. ^ The law stipulates that the flag should have a white hem (uçkurluk) at the hoist side, one thirtieth of the flag height wide, which would make the flag's aspect ratio 15:23. This hem however does not appear to be part of the flag design.
