The Corporate Identity of an organisation is
determined by its visual elements. These elements include an organisations emblem, its
typeface and the general image portrayed by that organisation. The Corporate Identity of
the South African Air Force is similarly influenced by these factors, as well as its
uniforms and rank insignia. The Vision, Mission and Motto of the Air Force forms an
integral part of its identity.
On the 29th of April 2003 the South
African Air Force, along with the whole South African Defence community took
its new Roundel, this replaces the old five point castle that served the Air Force well in
various guises through the past fifty odd years. The roundel is displayed
on Major equipment (Aircraft) and certain operational deployable
equipment. It is not to be displayed on support equipment and where
the situation demands a low visibility version may be used.
