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 three flight symbols rising and cojoined with a musical instrument symbolize the purpose of the unit. The slide and bell of a trombone, the instrument at the forefront of a military marching band, embodies the pride the squadron personnel have in their mission to sound the military call as an incentive to the courage of the troops.
