Italian Roundels

Confusion reigns as I get deeper into my SVA.5 project.

The roundels I was planning to use from the Ministry SPAD decal sheet have a green inner dot and a red outer circle. Nearly every other reference I've seen on Italian aircraft shows a green outer circle and a red inner dot. The only exception is the Glencoe SPAD reference, which shows Baracca's machine using the same roundel as the decal sheet. Question is: did the SPADs have a different roundel than the Capronis, SVAs, and Nieuports? Or did Ministry get it wrong by using a bogus reference? Any help appreciated!
