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. Three elements are depicted in the emblem: a Pegasus, stylized staff of Aesculapius and a constellation of stars. The Pegasus symbolizes the support the unit provides to the air crews. The staff of Aesculapius, replaced by the sword, reflects the warrior medic ethos of the Squadron. The seven stars circling the Pegasus represent the unity and solidarity Squadron personnel have 24 hours a day while providing medical service. The Latin motto, "OPTIMA ADIUVAMUS," translates to "We Support the Best" in English.
