Australian Royal Air Force Roundel Fridge Magnet
Australian Royal Air Force Roundel Aluminum Sign
The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) is the principal air and space force of Australia. The Royal Australian Air Force is commanded by the Chief of Air Force (CAF), who is subordinate to the Chief of the Defence Force (CDF). Formed in March 1921, as the Australian Air Force, through the separation of the Australian Air Corps from the Army in January 1920, which in turn amalgamated the separate aerial services of both the Army and Navy. It directly continues the traditions of the Australian Flying Corps, the aviation corps of the Army that fought in the First World War and that was formed on October 1912. During its history, the Royal Australian Air Force has fought in a number of major wars, including the Second World War in Europe and the Pacific, participated in the Berlin Airlift, Korean War, Vietnam War, and more recently in operations in Iraq War and the War in Afghanistan. Originally, the air force used the red, white and blue roundel of the RAF. However, during the Second World War the inner red circle, which was visually similar to the Japanese hinomaru, was removed after been mistakenly attacked by an American fighter. After the war, a range of options for the RAAF roundel was proposed, including the Southern Cross, a boomerang, a sprig of wattle, and a red kangaroo. On 2 July 1956, the current version of the roundel was formally adopted. This consists of a white inner circle with a red kangaroo surrounded by a royal blue circle. The kangaroo face forward.
Perfect for all pilot, aviation enthusiasts or military personnel that want to show their passion for the Australian Royal Air Force, this Novelty Round Sign looks great on a wall at home, garage, office, workshop, Man cave, private roadways or anywhere you feel you deserve a special decoration spot. The colors contrast beautifully on this beautiful emblem or roundel as I should say. For any guy, this is the ideal gift to add style and show their pride.
