Proposed name convention / unification of filenames[edit]

If you upload a file into this category, please try to help unifying the filenames. Choose a filename that corresponds to the existing scheme, corresponding to either

Roundel of the French Air Force.svg


Roundel of France.svg

where France should be replaced by the appropriate name.

In case of known air force abbreviations (RAF, USAF), you should choose e.g.

Roundel of the RCAF.svg

Include special features of a roundel in the end of the filename, e.g.

Roundel of the RCAF Lowvis.svg or
Roundel of the Finnish Air Force border.svg

If you got the time, try to work on renaming the other roundels to further unify the filenames in this category, as it has been done in the past in categories like Category:Flags, so that today the most important state flags can be adressed via Image:Flag of XYZ.svg.
