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 mythological wyvern, a form of dragon, historically associated with the parent wing, suggests the strength, speed and power of the unit in its support mission of long-range movement and/or air evacuation of personnel, equipment and supplies. Its extended right claw reflects readiness to deliver these services. The smoke and fire the wyvern breathes from its nostrils symbolizes the unit's personnel as the internal force of the wing. The red lightning bolt, historically associated with the active duty host unit, is tightly wrapped within the wyvern's tail to signify the global rapid deployment capability and the close relationship between the two units. The segmented gear, in perpetual motion, denotes the never ending logistical support continually provided to AMC. Lastly, the two crystalline stars represent the command and control capability offered in support of airlift operations. The Latin motto, "Consisto Consortio," translates to "Steadfast Partnership," in English.
