    Is there an official color blue for the flag? If there is, could you post picture?

    hia - welcome to USA flag site...

    yes there is an official shade of blue...
    finding old discussion doesnt mean you can't start a new thread ! (i enjoy answering such questions :D)

    it is called Old Glory Blue

    theres a very nice littlw webpage right here containign the colors of several nations flags - and their pantones
    you can see differences in them on the site - but as it explains they may appear different in print (when printed on a piece of material)

    Color Palettes - Patriotic Pantone Palettes in Shades of Red White and Blue

    heres a pic of the stars from one of my official US flags (its a nice big flag too - 9x17ft)

    so you can get a good idea of what the official shade of blue actualy looks like gsecvsnon010.jpg - Image - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
