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 tornado is symbolic of the speed and unpredictability of the airlift mission being performed by the unit. The stylized aircraft and parachutes allude to the Squadron's airlift mission and are an important link to its history of exemplary service during WWII in the European Theater, including Operation Overlord.
