Flags are often specified with either Pantone or CMYK colours (for printing), for which the corresponding RGB screen colours are often a "best guess" (as was the case on previous versions of this image file). This version uses the official RGB colours as specified in the Australian Government's Style Manual for Authors, Editors and Printers. Please see the talk page for more discussion about the flag colours.
