Metric Number Flag for #69

Coincidentally the Metric Number Flag for #69 is mix of blue and pink. They also represent the adopted colours of the male and female genders- world widely speaking.  Some people would argue that pink inherently represents the female form while blue the male form.  Going against this grain on this concept of colour to gender association is nearly impossible.  Perhaps the association with pink to girl is proof of the collective unconscious? Even the most objective mind can not undo the intuitive tendency to associate pink to female, however blue to male is easier to detach from its masculine association.

Just for contrast the Metric Number Flag for #96 is nearly a perfect converse but pink's contrast indicator is the colour blue, while indigo's contrast indicator is the colour white.
