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 represents the unit's functions in global satellite operations. The three four-pointed stars in a concentric orbit around the globe reflect the Clarke principle of worldwide satellite coverage. The star in chief represents the sun, the center of the solar system and the source of power for the satellites. The star in base denotes the moon used by satellite operators as a point of reference for altitude control. The lightning bolts signify communications between the Squadron and satellite payloads.
