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 represents the international mission and is borrowed from the emblem of the 555th International Group, the parent organization. The quill pen is emblematic of the art of writing, representing the products of the Squadron's support: international agreements, information and management tools. The lightning bolt portrays speed and also represents the information systems at the heart of the support process. The quill pen and the lightning bolt are crossed to simulate a cradle or brace and imply support to the international mission.
