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 eagle is representative of the respect and power of the unit's primary weapon system, the bomber. The vapor trail is suggestive of the high altitude at which the unit operates. Clutched in the eagle's claws, the aerial bomb alludes to the primary mission of the unit. The red in the eagle's eye and bands on the bomb symbolize the power and destruction the unit is capable of delivering.
