Registration notes: The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) tartan has been created to celebrate 100 years since the Australian Air Corps became the Royal Australian Air Force, with HRH King George V approving the use of the word "Royal" in the name in June 1921, and to honour the service of all the men and woman who have served in the RAAF for the last 100 years and to those who continue to serve. The colours are intended to represent those associated with the RAAF: light blue represents the RAAF Ensign; dark blue represents the Australian National Flag and the blue roundel in which is located the red kangaroo, “in motion”, facing forward to the front of the aircraft; white represents the seven pointed Commonwealth Star, the five white stars of the Southern Cross constellation and the central background of the roundel; red represents the British Union Jack and the securing & placement of the red kangaroo.
