Geographic Salt Lake City Flag

The Geographic Salt Lake City flag has a field of red.  Usually Geographic flags are composed of tribars with each bar coded to color and number.  Since red is the first color of the rainbow it represents the number 1.

Since Salt Lake City sits at 111 Degrees West.  The field is completely red!  The central white pentagon also indicates that this is a western line of longitude.  Otherwise it would be yellow to indicate an eastern line of longitude.

The two stars show us the latitude, which is 40 degrees.  Since green is the 4th colour of the rainbow, the dominant star is green.
