Federal color standards




I have a customer searching for federal color standards of blue and red (as in the US flag). Any help on these chip numbers would be appreciated.

Hello Jake!

I've got a copy of Fed-Std-595, complete with the color chips, but I can't pick out which of the many reds and blues match those of the US flag. I mean, 31350 looks rather dark, 31302 looks too faded, etc. The ASSIST website (assist.daps.mil) says they carry the spec (595) as a warehouse item, i.e. as paper copies. Perhaps they can get you one- and perhaps even more useful, they may know which colors are called out by whatever agency has jurisdiction over the topic.

Good luck!

This page describes the color specifications of the red white and blue of a Texas flag. Supposedly the Texas flag uses the exact same color specs as the US flag.

Q. I'm building an F-16 , and I'm looking for the Standard numbers for the gray, medium blue, and light blue that is used on some of these planes. Thanks
