Colour combinations include rainbow brights, pastels, monochrome with a single pop of colour, and animal print. The flags are set along the lamp's cable, which can be twisted into various configurations.

One design, titled Colour Me Happy, is intended to be educational, with flags in secondary colours arranged between the primary colours that create them.
