Design your own roundel!

Did you know that the kiwi roundel has been painted on aircraft of the Royal New Zealand Air Force for 50 years?

Many different air forces around the world use roundels to show who their aircraft belong to. Usually this roundel includes something that symbolises their country. For example, the Royal Australian Air Force has a kangaroo in its roundel, and the Royal Canadian Air Force has a maple leaf.

If you were to design your own air force roundel, what special emblems would you use?
