Morse Code Flag for the Letter Y - Yankee
The Yankee Morse Code Flag is blue and red. Some may say light blue or sky blue, but it is blue nonetheless. The star and stripes are red. The order of stripes and star is based upon the Morse Code pattern for the letter Y. The three stripes are reflective of the three DASHES for the letter Y, while the one star is reflective of the one DOT.
The colours are based upon the numerical value for the ones place of the letter Y. And the letter the Y is 25th number in the English Alphabet. And 5 is the ones place value. And 5 is set to a light colour blue. Red is used because red is the set contrast indicator for light blue.
