This section describes and illustrates the various national insignia used by the Swiss Air Force since its formation:
Main MarkingFin Flash
By late 1915 Swiss military aircraft were being marked with the national flag, on the wings and on the fin/rudder. During WW2 red-white stripes were added to the wings and fuselage as neutrality markings.
Since 1945 the national markings have usually been presented in the form of a roundel. The main marking is displayed on the fuselage sides of the helicopters, and above and below each wing and on aircraft. The fin flash is carried in place of a fuselage roundel on aircraft. Aircraft do not carry service titles.
