The Air Force Symbol is the official symbol of the United States Air Force. It honors the heritage of our past and represents the promise of our future. Furthermore, it retains the core elements of our Air Corps heritage, the "Arnold" wings and star with circle, and modernizes them to reflect our air and space force of today and tomorrow.
The Air Force Public Affairs Agency produced a poster series explaining each element of the symbol. Like our Airmen, each individual part has a role to play in representing our service but is truly great when all those individual elements come together to work as a whole.
