COMMENTS

The flag of Nepal consists of two overlapping triangles:

A...D

|\  .

| \ .

|  \.

| E-F

|  \.

B---C

The bounding rectangle is then ABCD, and the ratio is AB/BC.

This constant is algebraic, specifically quartic. In particular it is the least root of 243356742235044x^4 - 1325568548812608x^3 + 2700899847521244x^2 - 2439951444086880x + 824634725389225. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 24 2013
