The Air Force Emblem

The Air Force Emblem, which contains the Coat of Arms encircled by an outer boarder that includes the words “United States Air Force” and the Department of the Air Force Seal are very similar in appearance and are often confused. As the Air Force Seal is only authorized for internal, official use only, the Air Force Emblem is an acceptable substitute for internal Air Force use and approved external commercial requests when the use of the Seal is not authorized.

The Emblem is an acceptable substitute for internal Air Force use when the use of the Seal is not authorized. For information on the Seal, click here.
