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 torch by itself represents liberty and enlightenment. The wings represent airpower. Together, the flaming winged torch represents the unit's mission. The act of holding the torch aloft with wings denotes lighting the way in the darkest night of adversity. The three stars represent the three contingency missions that the unit will stand firm to preserve: continuity of government, military support to civil authorities and support for national security events. The stars simultaneously represent the three Air Force wings that comprise the majority of the unit's personnel, specifically the 11th Wing, the 316th Wing and the 79th Medical Wing.
