Ben82192: Not on the national flag it doesn't. The Official Dutch flag is horizontal Red, White and Blue (as opposed to France, which is vertical Red, White and Blue). The Dutch Royal Standard has orange in it because the royal family is known as the House of "Oranje Nassau".

The Netherlands used to have orange color in their flag but because of the orange dye that had faded a lot on flag fabrics and looked like a light red color, they decided to change the flag and replace the orange bar to the red one. It was long time ago and nowadays they could easily use more durable orange dye but the red remains.

Personally, looking at it, I would say it was more yellow than orange. However, out of curiosity, I had a quick internet search and apparently the official colours (as per the Armenian government) state it is red, blue and orange...

I'm with Henning and Danny on this one. Sure, we all see a yellowy-orange kind of color looking at it, but if *Armenia* thinks and says it's orange – and most importantly, the stripe has a symbolic meaning that depends on it being orange – isn't that actually the most important criteria? I'm sure you've come across that seemingly odd (to us) socio-linguistic phenomena where different cultures have different perceptions of color classifications, like the languages that don't even have different words for, and therefore don't really differentiate between, say, blue and green. I therefore throw my support behind Orangemenia! 🇦🇲 (N.B. Oh, hey – it looks pretty darn orange on the flag emoji, actually…)

I'd agree, it's at least close enough
+1
level 71
Feb 8, 2019
Okay, I argued for Armenia, but I can't for Cyprus. The color country shape on Cyprus' flag is stated to symbolize the rich natural resource of copper on the island, so to me, that pretty clearly indicates they meant the color to be "copper", which is not the same as orange. Flags are all about symbolic meaning, so I think what should be paramount here, as I said in my previous comment, is how the countries themselves describe their flags. That's my 2¢ (in copper pennies)!

Thats like saying maroon isnt red or navy isnt blue. You could argue if coppercolored things are orange or brown though.

otherwise things will get out if control and people could say; my flag is tangerine, ivory, and emerald... etc

Yes. That there's more answers, but they didn't all fit, so only examples are given. The "..." is called ellipsis. And from a dictionary, ellipsis means: "the omission from speech or writing of a word or words that are superfluous or able to be understood from contextual clues."
