Red and white are the school colors. Red signifies courage, a virtue the cadets possess in everything they do. White suggests maturity, an attribute the cadets reflect in their manners and decisions. Black represents determination, a quality the cadets use to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to conquer any endeavor. Blue alludes to loyalty, an attribute the cadets have for each other and their country. The seven pointed star adapted from the great Cherokee Nation's flag symbolizes the seven ancient clans of the Cherokee. The wavy blue bar symbolizes water, alluding to the Creek tribe who were named after the creeks they originally lived along. The feathers denote the school's mascot, the Native American, also paying homage to the great Cherokee and Creek tribes that originally inhabited the State of Georgia. The overall triangular-shape alludes to the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail which, part of the trail, resides in the State of Georgia and the historical importance to the Cherokee nation.
