    In 1993 the chequerboard marking was rotated 90 degrees, to show a white square in the upper left. The main marking is displayed on each side of the fuselage on helicopters, and in the 4 standard wing positions on aircraft. The fin flash was displayed on the fin. Both aircraft and helicopters now carry service titles – usually MARYNARKA WOJENNA RP on the port side and POLISH NAVY on the starboard side.
