military identification signs. These are the Air Force Symbol, the Air Force Coat of Arms, the Air
Force Shield, and the squadron emblem disk.

2.13.1. Use of Symbol. Use the Air Force Symbol only on base identification signs (See
paragraphs 4.8 and 4.9) and water towers (See paragraph 4.33), never on any other type of
sign or structure.

components of headquarters level. It is always rendered in full color with no design variations.
2.13.3. Contrast to Background. The Air Force Coat of Arms is outlined with a thin black line
and is edged with golden yellow piping to contrast with the sign background (See Figure 2.25).
