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 motto, "EVINCENS HOSTES PER AUXILIA," is Latin for "DEFEATING ENEMIES THROUGH SUPPORT." It speaks to providing support to the warfighter in order to achieve mission success. The Spartan helmet represents each Squadron member. The Spartans were a very mission oriented and well trained group of professional warriors and were the most respected fighting force of their time. The meager numbers belied their capabilities and, more often than not, meant victory for themselves and their supported forces. The helmet represents the wisdom that each unit member has through specialized training and experience. The plume represents patriotism. The area connecting the plume to the helmet represents the perfection that the unit strives for in carrying out a difficult and delicate mission.
