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 two lightning bolts denote the unit's functions of command and control in both war and peacetime missions. They form a "V" shape indicating that the efforts of the Group will result in victory. The quill which indicates administrative control and planning functions is crossed with an olive branch and signifies the unit's support to peacetime missions. The lion grasping a broad ax symbolizes the courage and determination of the flying units supported by the Group. It is placed above the quill, olive branch and lightning bolts, representing that all the unit's efforts go to support the fighting forces.
