According to Album 2000
Aircraft Marking. - It's roundel maybe described bast by
blazoning (thoughh it is not a Coat of Arms) - "Or a Hurt
and a Chief Azure". The shades are of the national flag.

Why this design? I would think that a yellow disc with a blue
border and a black trident would be more obvious.

Both Military Aircraft Insignia of the World [cos98] and <www.skytamer.com>
reports only the use of the national flag.as a fin flash.

Encyclopaedia Universalis Yearbook lists for 1995 a
contingent of 610 men (82% Army and 18% Navy). Therefore, there
does not seem to be a separate Air Force in Barbados.

Seems that not entirely correct. According to <www.scramble.nl>,
Barbados is the base of the planes of Organization of Eastern
Caribbean States - Regional Security System Air Wing. However,
according to photos, the planes have no marking beside

Oddly enough, Roy Braybrook [byb85]
show the same roundel reported by Album 2000 (while in [whe86], which was published only a
year afterwards, there is no entry for Barbados and [cos98] report other marking).
