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 atomic symbol represents the Squadron's capability to store, maintain, and load weapons usually associate with the "Atomic Age." The contrasting weather symbols and sky conditions (sun and lightning, clouds and sky) represent the capability of the Squadron to perform its mission at any hour of the clock in any weather condition. The globe represents the global reach of the Squadron's munitions. The motto, "AMAT VICTORIA CURAM," in Latin translates to "VICTORY FAVORS THOSE WHO TAKE PAINS," in English.
