(Light) purple with two yellow stripes, each as wide (vertically measured) as 1/6th of the flag's height, the first one going from a point on the hoist distant 3/12ths of the flag's height from the top to the half of the bottom, and the second one going from the half of the top to a point on the fly distant 3/12ths of the flag's height from the bottom. The original description is even more complex, and is only understandable when you realise that the stripes are set at 45º and that their (vertically or horizontally measured) width is 1/6th the flag's height which equals 1/9th the flag's length. Ratio 2:3. Source: Fluvià 2001.
