I have noticed that the colors of the American Flag look off. After looking at the American Flag page on usa.gov and a website on repoducing colors from real life on computers, I have come to the conclusion that the colors on the Wikipedia page are incorrect. I feel that the American Flag ,as important and iconic as it is, should be as close to perfect as possible. Especially since Wikipedia is an encyclopedia.
According to the professionals in color reproduction and printing the colors should be as follows.
Old Glory Blue - RGB: 0, 33, 71
Old Glory Red - RGB: 187, 19, 62
White - RGB: 255, 255, 255

Alex_Microbe -- as has been discussed a number of times in the past, flag colors are specified in a device-independent description system, while computer RGB colors are inherently device-dependent, so there can be no RGB specification of flag colors which is "correct" for all purposes...

Hi, Flag of the British East India Company on this article is mentioned as from 1707–1801 whereas under the article Flag of the East India Company the same flag is mentioned as the flag between 1668 and 1801. Why this huge variation in age of usage? Thanks. --Pearll's SunTALK 14:28, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
1707 was when the Flag of England was replaced by the Flag of Great Britain for most purposes at sea... The 1668-1801 dating comes from the opinion that the St. George Cross was maintained in the canton for the whole period, while the 1707–1801 dating comes from the opinion that the canton was changed to the union flag (i.e. St. George + St. Andrew combination) in 1707...
