About the flag

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a white flag with white border, in the middle the national emblem and in each corner a yellow Sun. As far as I am aware, this is the first representation of the presidential flag with the white border. I guess that this is a recent development.

As of 1995?

In Album 1995 [pie95] The elements of the flag are much larger then in Album 2000 [pay00], especially the suns (6-pointed) that unproprtionally larger and not allowing for any border. In my opinion, whole this image is errorneous, it doesnít look anything like flags reported earlier ([smi75], [neu92]) nor latter ([pay00]).

Flaggenbuch [neu39] shows a 2:3 white flag with the national emblem in the middle and four yellow Suns. The relative dimensions are given, overall proportions 20:30; emblem size 10:10 in the middle of the flag, and the center of each Sun is 5 units from both closest edges. If Album 2000 [pay00] is correct, this is slightly changed nowdays.

Natníl Geo.1917 [gmc17] says:

502. Ensign and President. 2:3

Usage of the ensign as presidential flag is notable.
