Personal Flag Description: The VAST flag was designed by R. Christopher Pinette of Dallas. It contains all the elements of the Texas flag, and the chevron represents the "v" in vexillology. Composed of a dark blue (Pantone Matching System number 281) isosceles right triangle, a white horizontal chevron, and a red fly (Pantone Matching System number 193), the flag's width-to-length ratio is 2:3. The triangle's hypotenuse is the flag's hoist. The triangle's legs form the lines of the chevron nearest to the hoist. The lines of the chevron nearest to the fly are parallel to the triangle's legs, and the lines of the chevron nearest to the fly form a right angle located two-thirds of the flag's length toward the fly. The triangle contains a regular five-pointed star, which points up. The center of an imaginary circle circumscribing the star is located on the flag's horizontal center line, one-eighth of the flag's length toward the fly.
