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 owl represents prudence, intelligence, wisdom, strength in war and is associated with night flying. The fierce stare of the owl's eyes are indicative of alertness and readiness. The diamond shape is symbolic for defense, the nature and stealth of operations. The lightning bolt and skeleton key represent the Squadron's fusion of the communication and intelligence realms. All the elements combined represent the unit's mission to see through the darkness, to shed light and truth on the unknown.
