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 lightning bolt on a field of night was a component of the historical patch of the unit. It continues to represent the present unit's ability to conduct its mission anytime, anywhere. Two stars are the beacons of peace and democracy the Squadron strives to bring to a war torn area. The Desert Fox is a wily, cunning creature, well adapted to its tasks and environment and reflects the tenacious manner with which the unit conducts its assigned missions.
