 Not Just Red White and Blue

It seems appropriate, with the Olympic Games in full swing, to consider flags. How many national flags are combinations of these three colours? More than I had imagined. The trio of bold colours come as simple horizontal and vertical bands or complex combinations including other shapes. Blue and white or red and white also feature heavily. The most significant colours apart from these are green, yellow and orange.
