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 field of the shield is equally divided into six horizontal bars plus a single vertical pale to represent the historical numerical designation of the 61st Troop Carrier Group and the 61st Air Base Group. The horizontal bars are symbolic of strength and endurance. The pale, used to represent protection, is formed by two nebular lines drawn from top to bottom of the shield. The nebular lines represent clouds and symbolically portray the mission of the unit.
