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 pile signifies the sun with the sharp razor point representing the accuracy of the Squadron's deliveries and also denotes a stylized lightning bolt showing how rapidly the unit responds to any contingency. The sword with the dollar sign within an annulet as the pommel represents the importance of using money as a weapon system. The sword is winged, representing the airlift mission the unit supports. The Latin motto, "Prosperitates Sacrificium," translates to "Prosperity through Sacrifice" in English and expresses the daily responsibilities of the Squadron.
