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 helmeted head of Athena draws heritage from the 7206th Support Group, The U.S. Logistics Group (TUSLOG), formerly stationed in Athens, Greece. The winged amphora signifies respect to the former TUSLOG, of which the unit was an integral part, and the continuing tradition of support. The olive branches allude to the dedication to the cause of peace. The head of Athena symbolizes the strength of democracy and the honorable fight for peace and freedom. The unit's Greek motto, "TAPITEDEIA PAREKHOMEN," translates to "We Support" in English.
