Zambian Flag Colors

I haven’t found an official source that confirms the RGB, HEX, HSB or CMYK colors of the Zambian Flag, so in case anyone stumbles on them, please drop me a note.

For now, here’s what I’ve been using:


RGB: 0, 136, 3

HEX: #008803

HSB: 121, 100, 53

CMYK: 100,0,98,47


RGB: 219, 29, 5

HEX: #DB1D05

HSB: 7,98,86

CMYK: 0,87,98,14


RGB: 0, 0, 0

HEX: #000000

HSB: 0, 0, 0

CMYK: 0,0,0,100


RGB: 236, 127, 0

HEX: #EC7F00

HSB: 32, 100, 93

CMYK: 0,46,100,7

Force Outlook to allow certain attachments

If you run into the following error message “Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments:”, chances are you were trying to open an attachment that needs to be explicitly added using the following steps:

1) Open Regedit

2) Depending on the version of Outlook that you have installed, you may end up with a slightly different string hierachy, but try and locate the Outlook Security folder. On my workstation this was located at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Office\14.0\Outlook\Sec

2) Create a new String Value called Level1Remove

3) Add the list of file attachments that you would like to permit in Outlook. For example add mdb;temx;

4) Click OK

5) Try opening the attachment in Outlook again
