Currently, the flag is 50 percent wider than its height (i.e. in the proportion 2:3) and, except in the [[French Navy|French navy]], has stripes of equal width. Initially, the three stripes of the flag were not equally wide, being in the proportions 30 (blue), 33 (white) and 37 (red). Under [[Napoleon I of France|Napoleon I]], the proportions were changed to make the stripes' width equal, but by a regulation dated 17 May 1853, the navy went back to using the 30:33:37 proportions, which it continues to use, as the flapping of the flag makes portions farther from the halyard seem smaller.
