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 Griffin symbolizes the strength, knowledge and bravery of the unit. The cross at the center of the Griffin alludes to conservation of health as the "heart" of the unit's mission. The border color chosen is significant of the blood of life and the courage to do what's right. The soaring flight symbol refers to the aerodynamic mission of the unit's expeditionary nature in support of the aerospace community. All elements combined serve to illustrate the English translation of the unit's motto, "CONSERVO VALEO CONSERVO AERIUS," translated in English to "PRESERVE HEALTH, PRESERVE FLIGHT."
