Andorra is always  favourite of mine.   What would its national markings be though?   A French and Spanish roundel equally divided?  ;)

I've been to Andorra one time, for a country only 13 miles square, most of it tilted up at minimum 60 degrees, I would say that having an airforce there would be quite a challenge ---- The main town (only one I think) runs along a thin valley floor which is really only  a pass through the mountains.  The city of Calgary is bigger than the whole country too --

My 2.25 (US) cent's worth . . . How 'bout Irish?  W squadron of them would go great on the Carrier "Dublin."

Maybe a Blue/Yellow/Red Roundel or maybe simply the Andorran Flag or Coat of Arms:
