It's definitely not an orchid. That's right. It's definitely not an orchid. It's the national flower of Taiwan (well, Republic of China). I believe the flower is actually white in color, not pink nor purple as CI's color scheme might led you to believe. >>a logo or a decal ? > >Yes. It's a logo, and almost certainly applied to the aircraft using >a decal. 3M made the decal. On one of the first flights (with the new logo decals) many pieces fell off enroute to LAX. CI was very unhappy with 3M. 3M claimed the decal didn't work as expected because of the high humidity in Taiwan. I believe the problem has since been resolved.
