Which of the two Americolor blues - Navy and Royal - will give the truesst bright blue like the blue field on the American flag?? Does another color need to be mixed with it? Thanks - I'm really struggling with this! PAT

My guess would be the navy blue. Just keep adding color until it's as deep as you want it.

I'd say royal. It is the brighter of the blues. I used the Navy blue on my FFA cake in my photos. It is a pretty blue, but deeper/darker in color.

Royal. If it gets too bright maybe add a touch of the Navy but the blue on the flag is fairly bright.

I also vote for the royal. Navy gives you a darker, deeper blue

I think its the navy blue too.
Make it as darker as you want but for me I like the navy blue.

Actually the blue on the flag is neither Royal nor Navy.... it is Old Glory Blue (which is closer to navy than royal). As a Graphic Designer and a Military spouse, it bugs me when people use Royal blue on flag art, lol

Cable No. 70180 Old Glory Red, Cable No. 70001 White, Cable No. 70075 Old Glory Blue

For Pantone colors the red is generally considered the same as Pantone 193, and the blue as Pantone 281.
