Air Force Symbol > Colors


In all applications, no matter what the color, the correct font for "U.S. AIR FORCE" when used with the Symbol is "Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk bold extended." If "Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk bold extended" is not available use "Arial Black bold uppercase."


The Symbol is available for use in blue, black, grey, chrome-silver, chrome-blue and white versions. Each of the colors is specified below in standard Pantone CMYK and RGB options. Pantone is a widely used color matching system designed to ensure that color output is the intended color. If the exact Pantone color is unavailable, it is easy to reproduce the exact color combinations in most software applications by adjusting the percentages of different colors. CMYK represents the colors Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. Mixing these four colors can produce nearly all colors. RGB represents Red, Green and Blue and mixing of these colors can also create most other colors. Below are the Pantone numbers and optional CMYK or RGB mixes.
