Law on the flag and construction sheet

[Construction sheet]by Željko Heimer

My source is Jiri Tenora, who wrote (in French):

Geometry of the flag is: An invisible cross divides the field in four quarters which are accordingly smaller than normal quarters.

Tenora attached a drawing similar to my drawing in Album des Pavillons.

[Variant of the flag]by Željko Heimer

The web page of the Parliament of Georgia includes all Georgian laws, among which the Law of Georgia on national flag and anthem (14 November 1990).

However, the construction sheet clearly shows that the flag ratio is 3:5 and that the canton reaches 2/5 of both length and width of the flag (i.e. vertically canton:field = 2:3, horizontally black:white:red = 1:1:3).
