Geographic Frankfort, Kentucky Flag

The Geographic Frankfort flag is a tribar of white, black, and green which represent the longitude.  The colours are coded to numbers, based upon the order of the rainbow.  Here white, black, and green represent the numbers 084, which is 84 Degrees West.  A Western longitude is indicated by the white pentagon in the center, otherwise if it is yellow then it is East. 

The central stars of yellow and black represent 38, which references 38 Degrees North.  Since the dominant yellow star is pointing up, it indicates the Northern Hemisphere.  Otherwise a downward dominant star would indicate the Southern Hemisphere.
