Aircraft Marking

[Botswana roundel] image by Željko Heimer, 18 Mar 2001

Botswana has a triangular "roundel" of light blue - white - black. The triangle points down, and apparently from the image in Album 2000, it is not an equilateral triangle.

Fin flash

[Botswana fin flash] image by Jarig Bakker, 19 March 2001

The Botswana Defence Force (BDF) was formed in 1977. Aircraft are marked in the national colors of blue - for the sky - and black and white for racial unity. The wings and fuselage use the colors in the form of a triangle. A thin stripe of blue over white over black is painted across the fin and rudder.
The image in the book is a triband delined by the form of the tail.  I have assumed that the definition of the form in 1:2 proportions is correct.
