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 field and eight stars represent the heavens and the security provided by the airpower that the Squadron supports. The historic 1943-1947 National Aircraft Insignia is an overt reminder of this unit's link to its past and its name sake, the 44th Bombardment Group's, courageous actions during that war. During WWII, these famous airman coined a war cry: "Aggressor Beware." The stylized deltas with contrails signify the Squadron's link to aviation and their pride in producing airpower.
