Description of the flag

Nevis uses a distinctive flag: yellow, with on the fly a green triangle with a blue base and a small white triangle on top, in the canton the national flag.
Mark Sensen, 26 Oct 1995

The Album 2000 [pay00] says:

4. Nevis. CS-/C-- ≅3:5
Yellow ensign with the national flag in the canton and triangular emblem in the fly. The emblem consists of a green isoscales triangle with a blue stripe along the base and white smaller triangle with the the green one, offset somewhat towards the top. The dimensions are given in the Album [pay00] as (6+8):(≅9+≅14). The tildes on length measurements are due to the tilde in the overall ratio ≅3:5. Saying the same in other words, the flag in the canton is 3/7 of the hoist high and appropriately long as the national flag should be (2:3). The emblem seems to be triangle of base size equal to its hieght, both being about 8 units (i.e. 8/14 of hoist; matching the album as close as possible is 8.4/14). The blue base about 2 units (exactly 1.75) and white triangle base and hieght about 3 units (exactly 2.8 in my image), distance between blue and white parts equal to the blue stripe. All these measurements are of little weight, unless they could be confirmed.

Depending on sources, the colour of the lower stripe of the triangle on the fly of the flag of Nevis is either blue or black.
