According to Album 2000 Aircraft Marking. - It's roundel maybe described bast by blazoning (thoughh it is not a Coat of Arms) - "Or a Hurt and a Chief Azure". The shades are of the national flag.

Why this design? I would think that a yellow disc with a blue border and a black trident would be more obvious.

Both Military Aircraft Insignia of the World [cos98] and <www.skytamer.com> reports only the use of the national flag.as a fin flash.

Encyclopaedia Universalis Yearbook lists for 1995 a contingent of 610 men (82% Army and 18% Navy). Therefore, there does not seem to be a separate Air Force in Barbados.

Seems that not entirely correct. According to <www.scramble.nl>, Barbados is the base of the planes of Organization of Eastern Caribbean States - Regional Security System Air Wing. However, according to photos, the planes have no marking beside registration numbers.

Oddly enough, Roy Braybrook [byb85] show the same roundel reported by Album 2000 (while in [whe86], which was published only a year afterwards, there is no entry for Barbados and [cos98] report other marking).
