An Example: drawing the French tricolour

You can create images using the GD2 library. The first tutorial Flags looks at drawing flags of the world, from simple flags such as Libya to more complicated flags such as the Stars and Stripes of the USA.

Notice that the blue rectangle has corners at (0,0) and (50,100) and has color [1,0,0]
