Angolan Air force roundel 1980
Initially wings and fuselage were marked with a red and black roundel, with a
yellow star on the inner part. The Angolan flag served as a fin marking. Later
a roundel split by a wavy line, red over black, and bearing a yellow star was
used, with the new flag on the fin.

I may add that according to this book the 1975 roundels (both) were
accompanied by a fin flash - horizontal red over black with yellow star in the
center, while since 1980 the roundel itself is also used as fin flash.
Contradicting info on this site, which show the 1975-80 roundel also used as
fin flash, but as the writer admits, he has problems to get accurate information.
- the Cochrane and Elliott review seems to me a bit uncertain too.....
