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 shark fighter plane symbolizes the unit's attack mission dating to WW II, when joined by the historic American Volunteer Group, "Flying Tigers" in the China-Burma-India Theatre. The diving attitude of the shark with guns blazing represents the power and aggressiveness with which the unit attacks the enemy, while protecting friendly forces. The scarlet fimbriation memorializes the sacrifice of members of the unit in past and future combat operations.
