Colour codes of the German flag – RGB, CMYK, HSV, RAL, Pantone

deutschlandflagge For my work as a graphic designer I often need exact colour specifications for printing or online publication.
Yesterday a task led me to find out the exact colour codes for the German flag. I found surprisingly little about it on the Internet.

In the past years, the colour specifications were always given differently by the Federal Government – sometimes in RAL, sometimes in Pantone.

That still doesn’t help us web designers and illustrators much. I have translated the individual colour spaces into each other and compiled them here. For the Pantone colours I chose the next one with minimal difference.
