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 globe and four stars represent the unit's theater of operation--Atlantic Area, Europe, Middle East and Africa. The flight symbol signifies the airlift missions the unit supports, and where it touches the ground represents the ground support provided by aerial port and maintenance personnel. The lightning flash depicts the flow and continuity of the Air Mobility Command System, passing through the flight symbol, demonstrating the interaction of aircrew, command and control, and ground support functions which, though separate, are dependent on each other for successful mission accomplishment.
