Air Wing of Jamaica Defense Force was formed in 1963. The roundel is "classic" black yellow green. Concering the fin flash I reported in that the fin flash s black-yellow-green, while Željko reported green-black-yellow (source: [cos98]). Checking <> revealed the Željko (and [cos98]) is correct.

Jamaica doesn't have an "air force." It has an "Air Wing" of the Defence Force (JDF), which is considered a support arm.

Air Wing Flag

Air Wing flag:
The ratio is approximated 2:3. It is a celestial blue flag with the national flag in the canton and the badge of the armed forces in the flyend. The badge shows the figures of the coat of arms golden in a red disc. Upon the flag it is superimposing a white 8-point star. [ped79a] denotes flag as "flyvevaabnets flag" (Air Force Flag). Basic colour is doubtful (It might be then navy blue or dark blue as well).
