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. A winged burro as displayed in flight emerging from the darkness into the dawn, carrying an important load to symbolize the Squadron's strength and persistence in carrying on under adverse conditions to deliver the cargo intact. The burro is named Pegbur, a name derived from Pegasus, the mythical flying horse, and burro, the desert donkey known to Sacramento Valley residents.
