The inlay pattern was created using AutoCAD (Yes, I did this at the office; but it was on my own time! ;)). Each ring is a block designed just such to provide the proper over under appearance of Euro 4 in 1 when arrayed properly; that's why the edge rings look broken up.
Creating the inlay pattern was an easy process of underlaying an image of the flag under the array of rings, then of changing the colors of appropriate rings to match the image.
This is the full inlay: The red stripes, left and right, are 23 columns wide by 57 rows (1311 rings each stripe).
The white field and leaf are a 44 column by 57 row section; it is shown in greater detail here. The individual rings are easier to see and count when the image is printed on hardcopy using a decent printer.
This inlay has been updated with a more accurate euro 4 in 1 ring grid, which consequently reduced the number of rings required.
