RAF stands for Riga's Autobus Fabrick and as you know - Riga is capital of Latvia. These minibuses were produced during the 1976 - 1997 time period, which happens to be right in times when Latvia was occupied by Russia. Because of the factory location and designers these minibuses were mostly known as "Latvijas" (Latvias). So... for the LUGNuts Aprils 2013 monthly challenge Behind the Iron Curtain as a proud Latvian I present to you Latvija. Honestly - this wasn't intentially, but it happens I chose the minibuses color schema right the same as Latvia's flag colors (and also proportions). So - here it is and I hope you like it.
