At least, they show a flag that looks different. I'm not sure; I'd say that
the flag goes further up the table, and also that it's not really hanging out at
the bottom. I'd go for 2:1:3, I think. Note also neighbouring
where a Columbian flag is in the same position. A flag with tilted arms, BTW,
including a ring bearing lettering, though in a different font from the one we
have). The emblem should be on the dividing line between green and blue,
presumably in the centre of the flag. This specimen also has a green fringe.
