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 winged sphinx in yellow is symbolic of the service in the Middle East Theater where the Group began its first historical tradition. The circle, diamond, triangle and square represent each squadron's service in Palestine. The blue of the field is emblematic of the intense blue of the African sky at night and represents the theater where heroic missions were successfully accomplished. The terra cotta red beneath the winged sphinx is symbolic of the desert around Gambut, Soluch and Benghasi. The bomb in the right side of the shield depicts the mission of the 376th Bombardment Wing (M).
