And the USAF were told (eventually!) to stop having their C9s permanently marked up with a red cross on the tail.

Seems odd to have copyright on such a basic and historically common symbol.

It is not "copyright", it is legal protection against misuse of the emblem.

BRCS

The emblem of a red cross with arms of equal length on a white background is the visible sign of protection under the 1949 Geneva Conventions. As such, it is the emblem of the armed forces’ medical services and its use is controlled by governments.

The British Red Cross is authorised by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence to use the emblem within specified limits. In return for this permission, we help monitor unauthorised use or misuse (whether deliberate or inadvertent) of the red cross emblem and similar symbols throughout the UK.

Many people are unaware of the true meaning of the emblem and its importance. It is first and foremost a symbol of neutral protection in wartime. To be effective, it must be understood and completely trusted.


That is why first aid boxes, and similar items, carry a Green Cross.
