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 snow-capped mountain range and forest are indicative of the unit's mantra to perform anytime and anywhere. The stylized Treble Clef signifies the unit's mission as an Air Force Military Band: to perform music and provide entertainment for military audiences; to enhance morale, esprit de corps and retention; and for civilian audiences, to increase public awareness and understanding of the armed forces.
