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 golden yellow shield and helmet represent the Squadron. The bomb represents the unit's World War II bombardment mission; its red symbolizing the blood shed by veterans of that war. The lightning bolts signify the Squadron's quick response to emergency situations. The olive branch and the Latin motto, "PAX OPUS NOSTRUM," translated into English as "Peace is our Profession" indicate the unit's goal of preserving the peace.
