PAF uses a green square outlined in yellow/gold with the crescent and star.

The roundel and flash did have a yellow border when Pakistan became independent, but it hasn't been used since the late 1950's/early 1960's. Like many Air Forces, the aircraft (especially combat aircraft are usually in subdued shades of green, grey, etc., and the bright outlines go away quickly.

According to other sources, Pakistan uses both fin flashes side by side (usually yellow bordered for non-combat planes).

The fin flash given for the Pakistan Air Force was changed in 1998, I believe, and the planes have since carried the national flag on their tails
