Happy Fourth Of July!
Do you know the “official” colors of the American flag? Well, yes, we all know they are red, white, and blue… But according to the Pantone website, the specific colors for our great American flag are Pantone 193 C (red), and the Pantone 282 C (blue). However, their website notes that blues 281 C and 288 C can also be substituted.
