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 light and dark embattled background reflects the day and night vigilance of unit personnel. The knight piece alludes to the unit's motto and suggests the affinity to medieval knights who provided security to their monarch. The game of chess also embodies the unit's studied and measured methods of providing security to Air Force personnel and property. The pole stars symbolize the historical origins within the NATO area of operations. The Latin motto, "VINCE AUT MORIRE," translates to "Conquer or Die" in English.
