"Airplane nose art evolved out of necessity for identifying 'friendlies' from enemy aircraft, which quickly became a powerful means of self-expression for military pilots and their crews. From national insignia, squadron markings and number/letter combinations nose art evolved into more personalized artwork, and individual pilots began sporting colourful, even outrageous schemes. Squadrons often used a special crest or colour scheme to identify aircraft in the squadron. This was an aid to groundcrews as well and helped them prepare to service their incoming aircraft during battle..."
