Aircraft Emblem

The Air Force of Djibouti uses a roundel of concentric disks of yellow, light blue, green and white (diameters being respectively 39, 36, 25, 12, based on my measuring of the figure in the Album 2000 [pay00]) with a red five-pointed star inscribed in the white disk. A marginal note to the figure says that the national flag is painted on the fin.

Cochrane and Elliot (1998) [c2e98] note the the national flag is used as rudder/tail boom insignia ( ).  It is not a rudder insignia but fin flash as in the photo at Force Aerienne du Djibouti was formed in 1977 and not in 1983.

Another note is my own belief that the yellow ring is not part of the roundel. Such rings are used occasionally for emphasis and are not considered parts of the roundel.
