Earlier markings included a red circle within the star, this example shows the red circle removed and the emblem is a blue circle with a white star, soon after the emblem was updated once again by adding a white bar on each side of the circle star. Note on this example, the aircraft markings show no bars, simply the blue circle with white star.
