National Markings Questions

Hello all,

I have a few questions about national markings that I haven't been able to find answers to.

First: Were the black bands used by Germany immediately pre-war painted on both the top and bottom surfaces of the wings, or just the bottoms? The few photos I've seen only showed the underside of the aircraft. At the time these markings were in use, aerial combat was unknown and the concern was identifying aircraft from the ground so I would guess that the bands were not painted on upper surfaces, but I'd like very much to hear from anyone who might have more information.

Thanks in advance,
