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 three stylized aircraft represent the other 96th Test Group organizations. They are in formation and on their way to accomplish their mission. The fourth stylized aircraft with a ribbon flight path rising from gilt-edge represents the 796th Test Support Squadron taking off from home base where new weapon systems are developed and joining the formation as a wingman. As the perfectly positioned wingman, the unit keeps all of its Test Group components in sight and continually scans ahead for obstacles, enabling the way. The Zia Sun represents the vision of the future, its size displaying the power of that vision. It is centered to represent where it should be for the U.S. Air Force weapons systems' test and evaluation mission. The unit motto, "Enabling the Way," reflects the Squadron's goal of making it possible for the Group to accomplish its mission. It accurately describes the attitude and capabilities of the 796th Test Support Squadron.
