The fix is finally in: the official colour endorsed by the Scottish Parliament is Pantone 300, a suitably fetching shade of sky-blue, as we British like to call it, azure.
BBC News: Flag colour is azure thing.
Scottish Parliament: Public Petitions Committee - Petition PE512.
For sure, the Saltire blue is a much lighter colour than commonly seen with most flags or most representations of flags, except for some of the well-faded versions flying around and about in Edinburgh.
