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 black scimitars represent the strength and might of combat air power in Southeast Asia. The brown whippet symbolizes the original group's mascot, Marauder, and by extension the first assigned aircraft, the B-26 Marauder. The flat silver stones, upon which the whippet rests, signify the stepping stones of the original flying squadrons to the present day Wing and show the untiring devotion to duty, extraordinary skills, courage and commitment.
