The flag of Krypton, Superman's home planet, first appeared in Action Comics #246 (Nov 1958). It is described as:
A multicolored banner consisting of pale rays of blue, yellow, lavender, white, green, orange, pink, light green, and red radiating outward from a circular center featuring a green and pale blue design suggestive of a body of water all but encircled by lush green land.There is an image of it here. There are a total of 10 rays- each color is used only once except for light green which is used for two rays, one on each side of the red.
Quoted from the Superman Encyclopedia.
the colors may be a bit faded--a problem easiliy solved by turning the saturation up a bit. The description says 'red' for the ninth ray, for example, but the .jpg shows more of an orange. Though the desription is a bit spotty--it only lists colors for nine rays, and there are ten. Eugene Ipavec, 2 march 2005
