All known Ar-2s were painted with AII green uppersurfaces and AII light blue undersurfaces.
They wore red stars with thin black outlines in 6 positions (fuselage, wing uppersurfaces, wing undersurfaces).
The propeller blades were natural alluminium with partially black rear surfaces.
Numbers of one digit were often painted on the rudder, but many planes are known without visible numbers.
This standard livery was the base for some camouflages observed on planes that survived the first days of war.
