Does Anyone have legend colors for the NHD Flowline that USGS sets colors for theirs ?

I'd like to get a copy of their color legend.

They can be from their website, brouchure, lyr files or anything that I can set it up easily to match their colors.

Can you provide an example of the symbology you are looking for? – Chad Cooper Apr 21 '11 at 20:50

This USGS/FGDC document, found here, has some info on stream data symbology (page A-30).

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.
