Kenya Defence Forces flag

The flag of the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) is a red (for the army), light blue (for the air force) and navy blue (for the navy) horizontal tricolour with the national flag (one-third the length and width of the ensign) in the canton.  The Kenya Defence Forces emblem is in the fly which comprises two black rifles crossed in saltire superimposed on a silver anchor, with a golden eagle, all above a golden scroll with the words KENYA DEFENCE FORCES in black.

Note that when not used on this flag, the KDF emblem has red crossed rifles, a navy blue anchor, and a golden eagle, above a white scroll with the words in black.

The flag of the Kenya Defence Forces, i.e. the "Joint Service Flag" as it would be called elsewhere is based on a design in the "British tradition".  There is an emblem in the fly, as can be seen at but with the guns on the flag being in black, no doubt to show better contrast to the red stripe.
