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 globe signifies the mission that encompasses the troops and families from all over the world and the support provided to them. The torch symbolizes how the unit keeps the home fires burning: caring for all; providing morale, recreation, welfare, administrative support; and sense of community. The flight symbol and contrail represent the continuous transfer of information that keeps the base running while at home or away. The flight symbol also represents that the unit keeps the base and the Air Force "Above All." The Latin motto, "VIGILANT MUNERIS," translates in English to "Vigilant Duty."
