The 'wing' of a Para-Glider is actually two sheets of material with openings along the front edge to inflate the wing into an aerodynamic shape. If the top and bottom are different patterns or colours, light through the fabrics can change the appearance as they change direction.
There are no G-xxxx license numbers on the canopies as seen on most aircraft and even Hang-gliders. The explanation is that ...
"A self-administering organisation is responsible for administering operational and airworthiness standards and for issuing pilot certificates."
Parachutes (as emergency equipment) don't require registration, and Para-gliders are sort of similar. We notice that Para-glider pilots sport an emergency parachute on their backs! Very sensible.
