Main Marking Fin Flash
Like Colombia's, Ecuador's flag is based on the Gran Colombia flag and its
colours are said to symbolise the country's natural recources (yellow), the sky
and the sea (blue) and the blood shed by the patriots (red). It appears on
military aircraft and helicopters as a fin flash or rudder stripes, and the
roundels, often applied on the wings only, have the same colours in proportions
directly related to those of the flag.
Most aircraft have the serial number applied on the fin, while most
helicopters have the serial number applied on the fuselage with the prefix AEE.
The service title
is displayed on the fuselage sides of aircraft and helicopters.
