Livery

The first Boeing, acquired by Lithuanian Airlines, was painted in red, with white national coat of arms used as a logo. Soon, all LAL aircraft became white with yellow-green-red stripe (colours of national flag). This scheme can still be seen on several LAL aircraft. From 2005, after the company was privatized and renamed to flyLAL - Lithuanian Airlines , color-scheme was switched to pink and white. [citation needed] A modern coat of arms is derived from the medi val practice of painting designs onto the shield and outer clothing of knights to enable them to be identified in battle, and later in tournaments. ...
