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 seven crosses represent the unit's ties to the parent organization, the 17th Training Wing. The flame represents light and knowledge gained through study and training. The alternate folds of metal underneath the flame represent the Air Force's presence on an Army installation. The Group's motto, "Lux Lucis Per Nixus," is translated to "Enlightenment Through Effort," in English.
