These are almost certainly the ceremonial colours of the Republic of Fiji
Military Forces: the red one on the left is the Colour of the 3rd Battalion,
Fiji Infantry Regiment; the white one with red St. George's Cross on the right
is the Colour of the Naval Unit.

Cochrane & Elliott (1998) report a national flag as fin flash as the only marking of the
Wing, Republic of Fiji Military Forces. However,
it is reported at
that "Formed in 1978, the Air Wing ceased to exist when it sold its last
helicopter in 1997.
Fiji Air Wing AS355F-2 DQ-FGH was originally purchased by the Fiji Air Wing
as the country's only (semi) military aircraft. However, it seems to have
spent most of its time in Fiji being operated on commercial flights by
Island Hoppers. It was later sold in France in mid-1999.
