Is there a simple scientific way to measure the flag's reflected colors % proportions by using prima

    I believe that a simple scientific experiment could be done to correctly measure the US flag's proportional percentages for the three reflected primary colors ( red, green, and blue ) by using primary colored glass light filters. This experiment could be done also to demonstrate the exact reflected color percentage proportion for the different types of flag construction materials.

    I do not understand why many americans seem to not want to know what the actual reflected primary color percentages are in the US flag. What is wrong with the possibility that the flag is actually over 55 per cent red in color ?

    From the following statement from another thread post within this forum, the approximate reflected color percentages may be calculated:

    "The red comprises 41.5 percent of the area of a 1 x 1.9 flag, while the white, including stars (but not the heading) is approximately 40.9 percent of the area, so the red and white take up about the same, though the red is slightly ahead.".

    As the definition of white is the presense of an exact equal percentage of the three primary colors, then the following calculations give the approximate color proportion percentages of the three primary colors as follows:

    Red = 41.5 + ( 40.9 / 3 Red percentage within White ) = 55.1333 per cent

    Green = 40.9 / 3 Green percentage within White = 13.63333 per cent

    Blue = ( 100 - 41.5 - 40.9 ) + ( 40.9 / 3 Blue percentage within White ) = 31.2333 per cent

    The following youtube.com video describes how white is made by the combination of different real colors that form the white. I believe that this video states in effect that if one uses a microscope with enough higher microscope power to observe the color white, then the so-called white color will then disappear, and the white will then be replaced within the microscope viewing with the different colors that make up the white. This is proof that white does not really exist, and that white is not a color.

    The following video shows a technician using a high powered microscope to check a newly manufactured color TV tube.
