tabAppropriate Uses of Trademarked Properties  

The U.S. Air Force Symbol, the Army Air Corps symbol (Hap Arnold Wings) and the Air Force Emblem are three of many Air Force trademarks. Permission to use them for commercial use, in marketing materials, in advertising (free or paid), or by any non-federal organization/activity, including non-profit organizations, is required.

The use of these trademarks for commercial purposes, including reproduction on merchandise, is expressly prohibited unless the producer completes a license agreement with the Air Force. Use is governed by the terms of the agreement.

Department of Defense employees, their families and veterans are required to obtain a license if they have a company, small business or hobby that intends to sell products bearing any Air Force trademark.

tabDisplay Guidelines 
The Air Force Symbol, an official trademark of the United States Air Force, must be displayed on all products in accordance with established guidelines. This applies to products created by Airmen such as challenge coins, slide presentations, morale shirts, wall art and newsletters, as well as public entities manufacturing commercial products like clothing, water bottles and magnets.



Official licensees may download the Symbol's styleguide and order labels from JPatton.
