Military Colors

by Joe McMillan, 3 March 2002

Infantry and Artillery - Infantry and artillery units carry the national flag, 90 x 145 cm, with the coat of arms on the center and, inscribed on the upper blue stripe the words DIOS UNION LIBERTAD [God, Union, Liberty] and on the lower the type and number of the unit, all in gold.  The staff is 250 cm long and 4 cm in diameter, with a gold-colored rhomboid lance-head, edged on the sides and at the point.  [Below the lance-head, two blue and white streamers are attached, but I'm not sure of the specific design.]. There is only one artillery regiment in the SV army.
Cavalry - Cavalry units carry the same flag, but with the inscriptions in silver.

Fuerza Aérea Salvadorena was formed in 20 March 1923 as Flotilla Aérea Salvadorena. From the start, it used a blue-white-blue roundel. The only change was in the tail colors which were changed from vertical rudder stripes (www.skytamer.com/el-salvador/01.htm) to horizontal rudder stripes in 1930 (www.skytamer.com/el-salvador/02.htm) and to fin flash in 1965 (www.skytamer.com/el-salvador/03.htm).
