Dear God, this is the most stupid logo and has NO connection to any military unit or service whatsoever! Reminds me of some bloody stupid TV ad created for some crap product to make hair grow! If you really want to hear some blunt opinions simply ask a Bomber command vet!

What a "follow up" to the all PC thread. To make it worse these idiots still get paid too much money too. Heaven help us if these people have to make some serious decisions if "the balloon goes up".

And all that Pac-Man yellow! Apart from other connotations of "yellow", it's a bit ironic when we've just got rid of yellow Sar birds.

You don't need to tinker too much with the roundel; one of the best logos IMHO is that of the BenFund, who just replace the red centre circle with a heart.



Very effective, obviously RAF connected - and probably quite cheap. And not bollocks!

It does resemble Capt Scarlets Spectrum logo.

Some of the suggestions

What a total embarrassment, the Royal Navy and the Army must be laughing their heads off! The current RAF must have more money going spare than they know what to do with.

I would love to know what branch of the service this Air Commodore hails from? Who could possibly have thought that this was a good idea? But then again having spent 4 years in the RAF recruiting organisation, I have seen plenty of similar half-witted schemes!

Whilst I agree that the centenary should have been as much about looking forward as looking back, this drivel is not the answer.

An utter load of c**p, this cannot be the service that I was proud to be a part of for 25 years.

Rant ends!

I'm surprised that the meeja-luvvy Air Commodore didn't go with the 'Spectrum' logo - it's 'rainbow' colours would have pandered to the LGB-GT mob....and earned him some diversity brownie points.

What is this obsession with 3 word motifs? 'Commemorate, Celebrate, Inspire', 'Agile, Adaptable, Capable'.....'Arbeit Macht Frei'?....'Kraft Durch Freude'?

Why didn't we "employ a flexible visual identity designed with cross-generational appeal" during WWII?
WTF is a flexible visual identity..?
The RAF can't be that short of money if they can afford this nonsense.
I'm sorry for those who serve under the present regime..

PeregrineW: the new quarter roundel might be referencing the size of the RAF compared to 25 years ago? It'll be a Triv Pursuits piece of pie before long!

What a load of .....

Spot on Nutty

What a complete and utter load of [email protected], both the 'logo' - a 4 year old could have done better - and the drivel, err I mean detailed explanation about why it's so wonderful.

It harks back (at least ) to the populist "1,2....3!" rabble rousing hookline device used by such as Dr.Goebbels and now plagiarised by the freeloading "bolloxerati" to new generations.

Think back: "Ein Volk,Ein Reich.....Ein Führer!

Nothing new (or original).

Seconded that is excellent.

BTW I believe the green arrow in the middle relates to "all going ahead together".

Such great outpouring of "respect" and "appreciation" for the efforts of veterans? I doubt it. It took over 70 years to award the Bomber Command clasp and, "going forward", the recognition of Officers long service was made to only apply to retirees after May 2014 in order to save 5p and yet, they can waste £££,£££ on this carp. What respect was that you mentioned?

The only thing that new logo made me think of was 'Big Brother is Watching You'.

I'd class it as spherical objects too.

The RAF Typhoon 100th anniversary display scheme.

Do you think they are using the monies they saved on paint.
