The Flag

The first flag was adopted by Country-Order of 19 November 1959, and had six stars. One star was dropped because Aruba left in 1986. The distance between the centres of the two topmost stars is two-third of the width of the blue stripe, likewise the distance between the centres of the two bottommost stars. The distance between the imaginary line trough the centres of the topmost stars and the imaginary line trough the centres of the bottommost stars is five-ninth of the width of the blue stripe. The centre of the leftmost star is located by forming an equilateral triangle with the centres of the two stars at the upperleft and bottomleft. Likewise the centre of the rightmost star is located.
