The national flag of Belgium is a tricolor of three bands of black, yellow, and red.
Officially the flag has unusual proportions of 13:15 which is rarely used. More common version is 2:3, which is used even by the government. But because this project is all about official proportions, this pattern uses the rarer configuration.
This pattern is worked vertically starting from bottom left.
