Figure 2.26. Air Force Shield.
2.14.6. Squadron Emblems. A squadron may use its authorized emblem on building
identification signs and on unit morale signs. (See paragraphs 4.13 and 7.11 for information on
these sign types). A disk is used for squadron insignia. All elements of the design must fit within
the disk. The unit designation should appear on the scroll below the disk, and the unit motto, if
used, on the scroll above the disk.
2.14.7. Ordering Emblem Decals. Decals of authorized squadron emblems may be ordered from
UNICOR (Federal Prison Industries), federal corrections institutions approved by the Joint
Commission on Printing, or commercial manufacturers.
2.14.8. Design for Emblem Decal. As with the Air Force shield, the design of a squadron
emblem should be simplified and clarified before the emblem is converted to a decal. Colors
should be solid, with no half tone screens. The disk should be outlined with a thin black line, and
the entire design edged with golden yellow, white, or silver gray piping to contrast with the
standard brown sign background. The lettering of the unit designation must be sharp and legible.
For further information relating to these emblems, refer to AFPAM 36-2801.
