 8)So, the "country" colors are really just a figment of someone's imagination?

well, in regard to the ammo tracers, yes. In regard to the insignias, no! :)

The reason the German planes appear to have a kaleidascope of colors is because of the various machine guns and cannons they are equipped with.

.50 cals are always red. 20mm are yellow and 30 cal are green. Ground tracer fire is a mystery to me. Someone else can respond to that one.
