Colour of KG 26 shield?


On May 16 1940 a Heinkel 111 H-3 marked 1H+DN made a forced landing at Sitasjavvre in Northwest Sweden. The plane did carry a KG 26 shield, and it appears light in colour.
This being a machine from 5. Staffel wouldn't it be natural that the shield was red? Or did KG 26 carry just the one colour on their Shield, and was this colour then white or yellow?
Edit: Or was the shield the same colour, white/yellow and then there was an outline signifying the Staffel or Gruppe?

Inquiring minds wants to know
