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 bat, a nocturnal raider, is armed with two aerial machine guns and, by his grim expression, indicates the Squadron is ready for a fight. The rays emanating from his eyes symbolize the device the Squadron uses to locate the enemy at night.
