We calculate color electric fields of quark/antiquark (\(\bar qq\)) and 3-quark (qqq) systems within the Chromodielectric Model (CDM). We explicitly evaluate the string tension of flux tubes in the \(\bar qq\)-system and analyze their profile. To reproduce results of lattice calculations we use a bag pressure B = (320 MeV)4 from which an effective strong-coupling constant α s ≈ 0.3 follows. With these parameters we get a Y-shaped configuration for large qqq-systems.
