More Emblomology

Red Stars have been used on more than just Sino-Soviet Aircraft.

The emblem on the left belonged to the XII corp of the Union Army (U.S. Civil War, 1862). Reconstituted as the XX corps in 1863, the unit's emblem was simplified (shown on the right).

The Chinese Air Force (The Peoples Liberation Army Air Force) has used a star alone and a star with bars extending to the sides. The symbols in the star refer to the date of the Long March.

In a somewhat similar manner, the U.S. has used a star in a roundel and a roundel with a star and bars extending to the side.

The graphic above, steps through a series of the emblems used over the years by U. S. Forces.
