Barraclough and Crampton (1981) [bcr81] on page 151 comment:
"The Air Force Ensign follows the same pattern as that of Britain, with the National Flag in the canton, and the target, coloured inwards black, white, red, green, in the fly." I wonder whether this is just an omission of the second white fimbriation or whether such a target actually existed.

Aircraft Marking

Roundel contains the national colours in concentric circles.

Kenya Airforce was formed in 01 June 1964.
[cos98] and [whe86] report the same roundel and fin flash as shown above.

However, while both and Album 2000 report the fin flash as vertical stripes, the photo at this page shows it as horizontal stripes.
Government planes use national flag as fin flash as seen at this site.

Fin Flash

National colours in a vertical pattern. Album 2000 shows the stripes "dexter-to-sinister" green-red-black with white fimbriations. However [cos98] clearly shows that the black should come first, towards the front of the aircraft.  Source: Album 2000.

Air Force Colour


image by Miles Li, 04 Jan 2008

In both the Kenya Army and the Kenya Air Force, the Colours (ceremonial flag) of regiments come in pairs: the Presidential Colour and Regimental Colour.

The Air Force Colour, modelled after the Queen's Colour of the Royal Air Force is a square, golden fringed, air force blue flag, presumably 3 feet 9 inches each side, with the abovementioned Presidential Colour in the canton with the Air Force badge in the centre, and the Air Force roundel in the lower fly.
