Cochrane & Elliott (1998) reported a white roundel with eight-pointed red star (two squares) bordered yellow and blue. It also mentions that "segmented roundel in red, yellow and blue" was reported but unconfirmed.

Upon independence, Moldova "inherited" quite a lot of military planes including Mig-29's. However in an article on war in the air entitled "War in Moldova, 1992" at http://www.acig.org/artman/publish/article_281.shtml it is noted that the maintenance of a large number of planes was too much the country and all combat planes were out of service (or sold to the highest bidder) in 1995. This was also the end for the use of this roundel. The Moldovan Air Force operates today only a small number of cargo planes which fly with civil registration and the national flag swept back as a fin flash. See http://www.fighter-jets.de/fighterjets/luftwaffen/mol.jpg and http://www.acig.org/artman/uploads/mo05.jpg for examples.
