Symbolism

Ultramarine blue is the primary color traditionally associated with Aviation units.  Blue is also symbolic of the sky, the unit's theater of operations and reflects perseverance, devotion and loyalty.  The eagle, denoting flight, swiftness, aggressiveness and mobility underscores the unit's motto and mission.  The white division of the shield suggests Idaho's majestic mountains.  The blue wavy bar represents the Snake River and alludes to the unit's primary training area.  Black recalls solidity, cohesion and strength.  The black and white/silver together suggest the capability of both night and day operations.  The motto translates to "Birds of Prey."


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 11 July 1989.
