English: Earth Flag: The image is of a flag representing Earth, her diverse communities of people, and all of her forms of life. The flag has an overall dimensional ratio of length: fifty-five, and width: thirty-four, which is similar to the golden ratio. The flag’s background is divided into two fields, per bend sinister, the upper-hoist field being black (HTML color #000000, PMS Black 6 C) and the lower-fly field being yellow (HTML color #FFFF00, PMS 803 C). In the center of the flag, overlapping the fields, is a large blue roundel (HTML color #0000FF, PMS Blue 072 C) with a light-blue crescent (HTML color #00AAFF, PMS 2995 C) describing its fly-side limb. The diameter of the roundel is 22/55 of the flag’s horizontal length. Within the flag’s upper-hoist canton is a smaller gray roundel (HTML color #555555, PMS P 172-14 C) with a white crescent (HTML color #FFFFFF) describing its fly-side limb. The diameter of the gray roundel is 6/55 of the flag’s horizontal length. Each roundel’s crescent, the concave edge whereof describes a semi-ellipse, is orthogonally oriented and has a width that is, at its widest, one-fourth of the diameter of its respective roundel. Both roundels are the same distance from the top of the flag: 6/34 of the vertical width of the flag, which is also the distance from the blue roundel to the bottom of the flag. The gray roundel is that same distance from the hoist: 6/55 of the horizontal length of the flag. The blue roundel represents the Earth, the gray roundel represents the Moon, and the yellow field represents the edge of the Sun. The gray roundel is three-elevenths of the diameter of the blue roundel, corresponding to a fairly accurate ratio of the actual sizes of the Moon and the Earth. The image was created using Inkscape and is in the public domain. (See construction sheet.)
