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 three white knights atop a chessboard world represent the Wing's three squadrons. The squadrons are also represented by the three rainbow-curved color bars of red, yellow, and blue below the knights. The checkerboard globe on which the knights rest represents the world and the tactical mobility possessed by the Wing. The armored knight with lance poised atop the three chessmen shows the overall authority of the Wing, which unites the actions and purpose of the squadrons. The black and white background represents day and night which indicates the capability to operate under all weather conditions.
