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 bulldog represents the true fighter. The dog's expression, with broken tooth, patch on head and spiked collar, represents an experienced hardened fighter without specifically showing aircraft, wings, flames, jets or armament, giving the emblem long-range suitability to a tactical fighter outfit. The bulldog's overall appearance has maintained a link to the Squadron's original bulldog patch approved by the CSAF for the 525th Tactical Fighter Squadron in 1955.
