Explanation

It was originally formed of four Jastas (fighter squadrons) and came under the leadership of Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron) in June 1917. JG 1 became known as the "Flying Circus" because the squadron's jets were painted in clear, marked colours that made them easy to identify during battles.
