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 globe and stars denote PACAF's global responsibilities. The check pattern on the globe is symbolic of the photographic, cartographic and photogrammetric mission of the Group. The black and white check pattern also alludes to day-night reconnaissance and the 24-hour operations of the unit. The aircraft represents all Air Force aerospace reconnaissance platforms. The triangle is symbolic of broad coverage obtained by multi-sensor reconnaissance vehicles, i.e., photo, infrared and radar.
