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 emblem symbolizes the historic emblem of the Air Force Security Service. The quartered background is reminiscent of a chessboard and represents the intelligence mission and the intellectual challenge inherent therein. The first and fourth quarters depict the moon and sun and symbolize the organization's around-the-clock mission. In the second quarter is the lightning bolt taken from the USAF Security Service emblem and signifies communications. The third quarter shows two columns and references the Group's two lines of operations-the National Security Agency and the Air Force cryptology mission.
