The flag has an exact size - 106cm x 115cm. The diameter of the emblem, including the (gold?) border of the mirror, is 37 cm. When combined with the diagram on the page, these figures do not seem to add up properly but appear to describe the proportions of the flag including the fringe. If I understood correctly, the order specifies some type of silk to be used, and there is a picture of the detail of the fringe.
