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 Medusa head reflects the Wing's earliest predecessor from 1943, the 327th Fighter Group. Medusa was a female character from Greek mythology whose gaze could turn people into stone and whose hair was made of live venomous snakes. The lightning flashes represent quick reaction capability. The feathers symbolize the Wing's tie to the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center.
