Air Force Roundel and Fin Flash
The Royal Thai Air Force uses a square national flag as fin flash.

Here's an interesting link titled "AXIS DECALS: ROYAL THAI AIRFORCE."
You can see distribution of the roundel, the fin flash and other related markings.

Actually, the rectangular "roundel" and the fin flash are very similar, and quite similar to the 1855-1916 national flag, except that the elephant is in a running attitude and with its trunk raised. Since the decal sheet is titled "The Royal Thai Air Force (1942-1945)" I wonder if during those years – of pro-Japanese nationalist government – the former flag was at all used.
