Metric Flag for Mt. Everest on the Grid at 86 Degrees East by 27 Degrees North

The Metric Grid flag for Mt. Everest uses the black, indigo, orange, yellow, purple, and white.  The Tri-bar portion represents the Longitude while the central star represents Latitude.  Black is coded to 8 and indigo is coded to 6, thus 86 for 86 degrees.  The central yellow pentagon indicates this is the Eastern Hemisphere.  The orange dominant star represents 20 while the lesser star represents 7, thus 27 which is 27 degrees North.  Since the dominant star is pointing up, this is the Northern Hemisphere.
