Royal Netherlands Air Force

Netherlands, Koninklijke Luchtmacht (KLu), adopted 17 july 1964, replacing an earlier pattern adopted 18 june 1948.
Mark Sensen, 28 June 1997

A flag for the Air Force was adopted only in 1948 (when it was still part of the Royal Netherlands Army as Military Aviation), revised in 1964. Also this flag is used as a flag next to the national flag, not instead of it.
Note that the Military Aviation of the Royal Netherlands Army wasn't active in the Netherlands Indies. The Military Aviation of the KNIL (Royal Netherlands Indies Army) was, which never had a flag.
BTW, both sections merged when the KNIL was dissolved in the early 1950's after Indonesia became independent.
