Ref: Livery on rockets?

It seems unlikely that this tag will be very useful. Are there roughly similar ones already?

Although I would not expect a huge number of questions, there is potential for maybe 6-12 questions, especially in the era of private spaceflight.

Some existing tags overlap the idea, but they are often not a good fit for the question.

So I would suggest allowing the tag to stay.

Do we need a 'livery' tag?

I don't know.

It seems unlikely that this tag will be very useful.

I'll list some questions where it might or might not apply. There may be a few more out there. I think there might be one more on identifying specific Saturn I or V launches based on some differences in markings, but I may be mis-remembering.

Are there roughly similar ones already?

  • I found a few but not all using the tag.
  • We don't have a "markings" or "symbol" or "logo" tag
  • Per comments we do already have , and with which some items below might better be tagged instead.

Note, I don't know how many of these describe markings that would count as "livery".

    $\begingroup$ We do have an insignia tag, but that doesn't really extend to the entire concept of livery. The color tag has been used for questions about exterior and interior coloration of rockets before. The more general design tag has been applied to such questions before. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage May 3 at 12:17

  • $\begingroup$ @called2voyage Ah those should be included in the discussion so I'll add them above, thanks! with my artfully mealy-mouthed wording “I don't know”, “might or might not”, “may be”, “might be” , “may be” and again, “I don't know” I'm not sure there is much here to agree or disagree with :-) $\endgroup$ – uhoh May 4 at 7:36
