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 mountain range depicts metrology as the foundation for which all other measurements are accomplished. The mountains covered in snow represent the purity and truth of the metrology mission. The atomic symbol epitomizes the accuracy every metrologist brings to each calibration effort. The lightning bolt represents the veracity with which Squadron members perform meticulous calibrations.
