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 nine stars symbolize the 9 RW/MDG/AMDS. The Rod of Asclepius represents the physiologic and aeromedical challenges inherent in the mission the unit supports. The horizon between the sky and earth is a representation of how the atmosphere appears from high altitude, along with the figurative representation of the "thin line" that protects members of the Squadron. The Latin motto, "SUPER ET PRAETER," translates to "Above and Beyond" in English and represents the nature of high-altitude ISR missions the unit supports, as well as the service the Squadron aspires to deliver.
