The width of the white and black stripes together is 1/5 of the length, the ratio of the white and black stripes is 1:4:1 (see ). This means:

  • The angle between the stripes and the horizontal lines is
\arctan\frac{15+\sqrt{33}}{24}\ \approx\ 40.838718^\circ
  • The distance between the top left corner of the flag and the top left corner of the black stripe is
w\cdot(3\sqrt{33}-5)/{240}\ \approx\ 0.0509737\, w,
where w= width of the flag. All other dimensions can easily be derived from this.
