I'd paint the yellow, then black so they join at the same angle as your stripes, then mask off for the 3 white stripes. You might have to give the white stripes an extra coat or something to cover the black, just make sure each preceding coat is thoroughly dry and you shouldn't have any probs.

It's always easier to cover if you spray progressively darker colors. I'd spray the white, mask it, yellow, mask it, then do the black.
