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 fly represents the Squadron's historic tactical airlift mission which involves landing on small airfields, as well as being omnipresent during military operations. The fly's body is Air Force yellow imposed on a blue disk representing the sky in Air Force blue, and the large load the fly is carrying under its belly symbolizes the heavy load tactical airlift brings to the warfighters. The green wings and the barren gray symbolize the various environments in which the Squadron delivers material, and the blue tips of the tail exemplify the Squadron's nickname, "Blue Tail Flies."
