Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The generic airframes reflect the Regular and Reserve Components of Total Force Integration (TFI). The "red tail" signifies the heritage of the 301 FS, one of the original Tuskegee squadrons, assigned under the 44th FG. The base of the airframes represents the stealthy traits of the fifth generation fighter (F-22). The AFRC side of TFI reflects on the citizen airmen of the 44th FG who are prepared to fly and fight in combat operations around the world. The two rows of four each stars represent one of the elements from the original patch of the 44th Bombardment Group. The two rows of four mullets also refer to the unit's numeric designation, "44th."
