We present results for Wilson loops smoothed with the Yang-Mills gradient flow and matched through the scale t0. They provide renormalized and precise operators allowing to test the 1/N2 scaling both at finite lattice spacing and in the continuum limit. Our results show an excellent scaling up to 1/N = 1/3. Additionally, we obtain a very precise non-perturbative confirmation of factorization in the large N limit.
