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 top and bottom backgrounds symbolize night and day, suggesting continuous support. The five stars represent the five geographic unified commands that the unit supports, which ensures that the allies are equipped to participate along side the unit. The globe signifies the unit's international mission and customers and is borrowed from the emblem of the Air Force Security Assistance Center, the unit's parent organization. The single wing symbolizes air power and is outstretched in a gesture of partnership with the allies. The wing was an element of the historical patch proposed by the Army Quartermaster General during World War II for the 55th Air Depot Group, the unit's predecessor organization.
