[Third proposal of the Westendorp comission]
by Jan Oskar Engene

This one is partly obscured in the photo, it is only possible to say that the field is light blue and that it has five narrow yellow bars.
Jan Oskar Engene, 28 January 1998

The third proposal has both yellow and white lines, and the same number of both. I am not sure how to understand that the "alternating lines making a yellow-white triangle."
Jan Oskar Engene, 29 January 1998

It is just a guess, but maybe it means that the white stripes (that come "out of the fly end") are not of equal length, even that they end in "backslash", those making the region where yellow and white stripes overlap to remind of a triangle. That might even come as a nice design? Maybe not for a national flag, but...
Zeljko Heimer, 30 January 1998

Your solution to the triangle in the third proposal seems natural. The triangle looks like a map of the country.
Jan Oskar Engene, 30 January 1998

This design has ten bars with a triangle made into the centre of the flag. The triangle looks like a map of the country. Again the bars seem to be without fimbriations.
Jan Oskar Engene, 2 February 1998

For historical reference the multi-bar version had no fimbrations.
