Flag for the Element of Rutherfordium
Rutherford is named after New Zealand's most famous nuclear physicist. It is an extremely rare element. Since it is in the D block the central disc has the colours of the D-flag, Delta. The field is red, white, green, which is coded to 1,0,3, which is related to the Z number of Rutherfordium, 103. The violet stripes on the fly and hoist reflect that its in the 7th period, since violet is the 7th colour of the rainbow. The white and green horizontal lines indicate Rutherfordium belongs in the group 4, since green is 4th colour in the spectrum.
