Significance
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 Pegasus is representative of Greek mythology where he was charged with carrying Zeus’s lightning bolts. In this analogy, the MDG/CC issues lightning bolts, and the Medical Support Squadron carries those charges to execute the mission. The lightning bolts represent the various charges required to support the operational mission behind the scenes, such as resourcing, manning, contracting, facility support, etc. The pillar symbolizes rain that would normally accompany a lighting storm that saturates the battlefield to ready the mission. The Pegasus represents loyalty and dedication to serve and support the unit’s comrades in executing their operational mission.
