The FAA requires towers that are painted, to be painted in seven alternate
stripes of red and white, with red being at both the top and bottom of the
tower. Each of the 7 stripes are of equal length, whether the tower is 200
feet, or 2000 feet tall.
Those broadcast towers that are not painted, are required to have strobes
on them running day and nite.
Towers under 200 ft normally are not required to be either painted or
strobed, unless in close proximity of an airport.
