You can find the Award Ribbons the ship had on this page.

There are more than in the 80's photo because ships get new awards every time they go into a warzone.

[quote="DrPR"]Ivan,

Good afternoon. Thank you very much dear DrPR and Admhawk with pleasure to read the information., Which forced new questions .. it was decided to dwell on this option ... Questions: 1) after all, what color were these letters DC ..EW .. E and C ), the letters on the radar of the same color as on the installation of weapons are white? ... well, for my education: 3) do these flags seem to be drawn? ... 4) is very similar to the drawing of a boat ..?
I apologize in advance for such sensitive issues .. thank you., Regards Ivan

The above link also shows you the signal flags for the international call letters, your number 3. A link that might also help (although it is hard to tell which "E" is which) is: https://www.navysite.de/what/bridgewing ... Battle%20E. The engineering one on the funnel would be red.

The flags are painted on. The colours are shown on the navsource link above. It is the 4 letter call sign of the ship.
The e on the radar is white.
Not sure about #4, will see if I can find any better pics.

It does look like a ship silhouette, but it's not there for very long.
