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 compass rose represents constant readiness and is reminiscent of the mariners who originally explored the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The stars at the compass points recall the Southern Cross Constellation of the Pacific region, the unit's area of responsibility as well as Air Force expansion into space. The winged star historically represents the Air Force and honors the original Thirteenth Air Force's emblem. The torteau signifies the honor and sacrifice with which personnel carry out their tasks.
