Flag for the Chuck Norris of Numbers - #73

The number flag for 73 is composed of two colours violet and yellow.  The upper hoist half that is violet represents 7 while the lower fly yellow represents 3. The yellow star in violet is a contrast indicator that coincidentally matches the ones column place value of the colour 3, which is yellow. Since 73 is only has two place values, only one star is shown.
