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 Gator, the traditional 5th "Mob" mascot, represents the unit's capability to quickly respond worldwide to support wartime and humanitarian contingencies. The Gator sits on top of the world reflecting the unit's motto of "Semper Primoris" which means "Always on Top." The web emanating from the Gator's feet represents the global connectivity capability of the Squadron. The four lightning bolts represent the four flights of the Squadron: Information Systems, Mission Systems, Weather Systems, and Combat Support. The globe represents the Squadron's readiness to deploy worldwide at a moments notice.
