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 winged helmet, the main emblem in the design, is a symbol of the Roman god Mercury. Mercury was the god of messages, speed, cleverness and cunning. These things all relate to the field of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, which is the Squadron's mission. Also prominently displayed are two lightning bolts which link the 631st back to its parent organization, the 350th Electronic Systems Wing. The globe element at the bottom of the design illustrates the global nature of the assets that the unit manages.
