And another good one:

... haven't been able to find one for South Ossetia. Perhaps they don't have any air assets.

EDIT: Wiki says they have 4 Hips but I haven't been able to find a picture of one... Where's Arthur when you need him?

Thanks for the pics Gerard!

I wonder if Kosovo's KPS has any helicopters - maybe they have interesting roundels too.

Barbados ??? a surprise !! ;http://forum.keypublishing.com/showthread.php?114717-Metro-Barbados-!

The one with the black-white-red stripes is from Trinidad and Tobago. The one with the shark mouth is from the Caribbean Regional Security System, an international agreement for the defense and security of the eastern Caribbean region. The Regional Security System was created out of a need for collective response to security threats, which were impacting on the stability of the region in the late 1970s and early 1980s. On 29 October 1982 four members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States—namely, Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines—signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Barbados to provide for "mutual assistance on request". The signatories agreed to prepare contingency plans and assist one another, on request, in national emergencies, prevention of smuggling, search and rescue, immigration control, fishery protection, customs and excise control, maritime policing duties, protection of off-shore installations, pollution control, national and other disasters and threats to national security. Saint Kitts and Nevis joined following independence in 1983, and Grenada followed two years later after Operation Urgent Fury, a combined U.S. and RSS invasion of the country. The MOU was updated in 1992 and the system acquired juridical status on 5 March 1996 under the Treaty which was signed at St. Georges, Grenada. The RSS initially started as a U.S. instrument to combat the spread of Communism in the Caribbean region. As of 2001, the RSS further cooperates with the CARICOM Regional Task Force on Crime and Security (CRTFCS).

I am translating my website into English and have it updated at the same time. It will take a lot of time for it will be done. A few countries are ready and published. The Dutch version is still up to date!

A question about Angola: What is the most recent one. Are they still using the one with the star or not.

No star in the current roundel.
