Several military flags

Two interesting pictures show Yemeni military-related UFE's:

- (Set of four military flags which seem to be judging from their colors, the following (from left to right): Yemeni Air Force (coat of arms: on a light blue horizontal background), Yemeni Navy (dark blue), Republic of Yemen Yemeni Army (crimson red). Source: (picture taken on December 14, 2008).

Here's another screenshot of an Al-Jazeera news channel broadcast in English taken on March 22.
Row of seven flags, most of them military-related. From left to right: UFE 1 (probably Air Force flag), UFE 2 (probably Army flag), UFE 3 (probably State Flag, with Coat of Arms in golden colors), UFE 4 (most likely country flag), UFE 5 (probably Republican Guard flag), UFE 6 (probably Navy flag) and UFE 7 (probably Minister of Defence or Military Forces flag).

The flags in the background can be identified as follows:
UFE 1 (Air Force flag),
UFE 2 (Armed Land Forces flag
UFE 3 (Presidental flag as State Flag with Coat of Arms in golden colors in the jack = Commander-in-Chief)
UFE 4 (National flag),
UFE 5 (Minister of Defense)
UFE 6 (Navy flag)
UFE 7 (Police flag).

The Regular Army was established by the Mutawakkilite Kingdom (or Kingdom of Yemen) in 1919. Later, during the split between the two countries (see South Yemen) in 1962 each State had its own Armed Forces, and then after the unification in 1990 they became a unified military force with all its respective branches, which are:
Yemen Land Forces (Army)
Yemen Coastal Defence Navy
Yemen Air Force and Air Defence
Yemen Border Guard (now most likely named Republican Guard)
Yemen Strategic Reserve Forces (which comprises the Missile Forces, Presidential Protection Forces or Presidential Guard and Special Operations)
Here are some flags that we can add (already reported but not giffed yet):
- Yemen Land Forces (Army, القوات المسلحة اليمنية) (Arabic Wikipedia article)
- Yemeni Coastal Defence Navy (القوات البحرية اليمنية والدفاع الساحلي) (Arabic Wikipedia article) (featuring the Navy's coat of arms)
- Yemen Air Force and Air Defence (القوات الجوية اليمنية‎ - al-Quwwat al-Jawwiya al-Yamaniya) (Arabic Wikipedia article) (featuring the Air Force's coat of arms)
- Yemen Republican Guard (الحرس الجمهوري اليمني) (Arabic Wikipedia article) (featuring the coat of arms) .
