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 formation of the stars represents the early wedge-shaped battle formation. The stars in the three-two-one grouping denote the countdown to blastoff of missile warfare as well as the unit's numerical designation. The laurel wreath symbolizes honors received in combat. The olive wreath
represents peace. Together, the laurel and olive wreaths commemorate 11 campaign participation credits and distinguished unit citations earned during World War ll by the 321st Bombardment Group, an early component of the unit. The olive wreath also refers to SAC and the Air Force goal of "Power for Peace" and indicates the unit's high level of responsibility.
