According to the French Navy Album, issue 2000 [pay00] - Aircraft Marking - Trinagular "roundel" of blue-black-white.

Estonian was first formed in 1918 as Lennuvae Rugement and renamed in 1925 to Eesti Lennuvagi and In 1928 to Eesti Ohukaitse until it was dissolved in 1940 and re-arranged in 1991 as Eesti Ohuvägi (homepage at <>).
Same roundel is used since its begining and it was readopted in 1991: triangle in national colors. Rudder stripes in national colors are now fin flash. Above we show the triangle points up, however, <> and <> show it point down and [cos98] show it point backwards as it is on the planes.
For those who are interested, there are two articles in Insignia: Estonian Air Force 1918-40 and The DH9 in Estonian Military Service.
