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 bald eagle, the National symbol, and the orbit ring symbolize the Wing's unique mission of transporting the President, Vice-President and National or foreign dignitaries anywhere on the globe. The Latin motto, "EXPERTO CREDE," translates to "Trust One Who Has Had Experience" in English.
