Dunno when the flag colours changed on Wikipedia but they're now using a brighter palette

Looking at the flag change history on Wikipedia it's a very unstable, frequent and imprecise change. And there is no official source. I guess it would be better to wait a bit.

Also, I think this color is more beautiful unless there is any official source that states otherwise.
