According to Album des Pavillons 2000 [pay00] the new national flag was adopted in 1995, redefining the relative sizes of the coloured flag fields. [pay00] gives the relative width of the hoist red field towards the fly tricolour field as 18:42 (...) as compared with the pre-1995 1:2. The current fly stripes are all of equal width, while the old version had the stripes as 2:1:2.

Armand du Payrat [pay] sent me copies of a few pages from a document in Arabic. Two pages include images and detailed construction sheets for the two non-1:2 versions. (...) Notably, the size of the emblem is not prescribed there. From the images in the document it is hard to judge the size, since the images there are schematic [i.e. not proportional].

[Construction Sheet, Flag for Government Buildings (Oman)] 4:7      [Construction Sheet, Flag for Ceremonies (Oman)] 5:7

In the official document provided by Armand du Payrat [pay], the dimensions of the flag are given in centimeters:

  • Flag for Government Buildings: overall size is 200 x 300 cm, the three stripes are therefore 66.6 cm each, while the length is divided into 116 cm red field and 234 cm of tricolour fly.
  • Flag for Ceremonies: flag 25 x 35 cm, each tricolour stripe 8.3 cm; length 10 cm red, 25 cm tricolour.
Album des Pavillons 2000 [pay00] gives the second ratio as 5:9, which is incorrect, resulting from a misinterpretation of the Arabic numerals.
