Enallos , a unit tail marking implies that ALL the aircraft of the squadron fly it ,how can it possibly be an individual effort ?
we're not talking about a display aircraft with some colourfull tail art, we're talking about unit insignia here .Maybe you should read up
The answer is: "No. It doesn't come as an order from above. The Unit desides that they want to aply some insignia to their aircraft, all of them, as a unit marking. They chose a design and they ask their superiors for permission. If the permission is given they move forward and aply the art. Other units have different scemes"

It's based on a USN Aggressor scheme like the one found on F-16N (retired):
And also applied on F-16C/D Block 52+ and F-16C/D Advanced of HAF:
In 1989 the first F-16C/Ds supplied to EPA arrived painted in the "Ghost" scheme, originally developed by the USN aggressor units, which was found to be even more fitting to the Greek needs. Consequently, "Ghost" - consisting of FS 35237 Blue, FS 36251 Grey, and FS 36307 Grey in a wrap-around pattern - started replacing the "Aegean Blue" on Greek Phantoms after 1996 as well. The Peace Icarus 2000 AUP Phantoms are painted in "Ghost" also, but the radar cone is now all Grey and the IFF antennae ahead of the windshield are the distinguishing differences.
