Description of the flag

The Organisation des villes du patrimoine mondial (Organization of World Heritage Cities), of which Québec is a member (and which is also the headquarters), also a flag of its own (since 1995): see (the pictures aren't good, however) The logo is described at

Attached is my attempt at reproducing the flag from the images on the site. It looks like the proportions are definitely 2:1, with an oval occupying approximately 62% of the (white) field vertically by 70% horizontally. The oval is of such thickness that the inner edge is approximately 70% vertically by 80% horizontally (of the outer ellipse). The three bars superposed on it (and creating a gap at the oval's base) seem to be dark red on top and dark gold below.

I recently saw a colour poster by the Organization of World Heritage Cities, and I was able to check on the design and colours of the logo (it measured 2,5 x 1,25 cm). I can report the oval has proportions of 2:1, and the colour a very dark greenish blue (~RGB 0, 56, 64).
