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 globe represents the Squadron's worldwide deployment. The red horizon signifies valor while the eight yellow stars highlight the unit's historical ties to the Eighth Air Force. The falcon represents the blanket of security provided by the unit and represents the aggressiveness of its personnel when called upon to defend the United States. The barbed wire fence represents the protection provided by Defenders for Air Force installations, resources and personnel. The unit's motto, "Pale Na' Koa," Hawaiian for "Warriors in Defense," reflects the Squadron's commitment.
