Japan  


History
   A start in military aviation in Japan was made before the First World War. The present Army and Navy Self Defence Forces date from 1954. Japanese military aircraft have always used the same marking, a red disc representing the sun. The disc has been outlined in white or yellow on a dark background and, for Second World War Home Defence units, on a white square. In 1945, to facilitate surrender agreements, the Allies decreed that all Japanese military aircraft should be painted white and carry a green cross in the normal insignia positions.
