Force Aerienne de la Republique du Mali was formed in 1961. Cochrane and Elliot (1998), [c2e98], report a
roundel of (inside out) green-yellow-red, also used recently as the fin flash (previously the stripes in the national colours were used).
However, the Album 2000, [pay00] reports the oposite colour order for the roundel: red-yellow-green.

The source for the [pay00] report is a newspaper photograph, dated 1999.

I have a few books from the mid 80s with a/c markings. One shows Mali with the 'reverse' roundel the same as Album 2000. ( with the
national flag as a fin flash ).

"Le Figaro", 30 July 2012, shows a photo of President of the Republic
Dioncounda Traoré back to Bamako after a two-month exile in France. On the
photo, the President is presented the color of the Air Force Staff.
The flag is vertically divided green-yellow-red, that is, the national flag of Mali, charged in the middle with a badge, surrounded on top and bottom by a writing in black capital letters (the badge and the writing form a kind of eye):
- top: RÉPUBLIQUE DU MALI
- bottom: ÉTAT MAJOR ARMÉE DE L'AIR
