What color goes best with the Union Jack?

I have been lurking and reading but now I have a question. I like the look of the Union Jack on the MINI S car. What is the best car body color to accent the Union Jack on the white roof?

In my opinion, Indi Blue. I also think that Indi Blue and White is a cracking colour combination.

IMO, either Indi Blue or Chili Red.

I have to agree with the indigo blue. I'd really like to put one on my electric blue, but afraid of a clash of blue myself. I'm sure there are superb combinations though.

I decided red would compliment my Jack the best. I was torn, 'cause I really like indi but I feared the different blues would clash - especially over time. My first preference would have been BRG - if I liked MINI's hue.

There's also an aftermarket silver/black Jack if you want a more modern interpretation.

I saw a Union Jack on a BRG this weekend and it looked surprisingly good. Not a combo I would have thought to get.

I saw an E/B with a UJ IMHO, it looked very poor!! Colours really dont work well together!

McprS - I have a EB with UJ on the roof and I'm quite pleased with it. I really did not think it would work - but it surprised me. The blue's are sufficiently different that they contrast rather than clash (IMO).

I think that IB, BRG and CR all look better - but only the red was an option when I got my S - and I could not have Red seats so EB it was.

Can't go wrong with the Chili Red and White combo -

Matches perfectly!

The only other true option, IMHO, is the Gr8Shag Mini that Michael Caine is driving in "Goldmember". Which was fully striped and a great blue to match.
I am debating between the checkerboard and union jack - I have a sunroof so it's hard to tell what either would really look like...

MX100 at your age, your insurance bill may be quite large. Check with your insurance company.
