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 bull is a traditional Air Force Civil Engineer symbol representing "Prime BEEF" (Prime Base Engineer Emergency Forces), the basic description for all civil engineer career fields. The wings of the bull are also a traditional Air Force symbol representing the global reach of Air Force Civil Engineers. The dagger is derived from the AFSOC patch and is emblematic of the unit's "commando engineer" heritage in support of Air Force and Department of Defense Special Operations worldwide. The background supports the Squadron's unique role in Special Operations, which are often conducted under the cover of night and in a covert nature.
