Department of the Air Force Trademark Registrations

Did you know that the Dept. of the Air Force (DAF) has several active trademark registrations? Fun fact: we have over 40 active trademark registrations.

Our more commonly known registered trademarks range from the Air Force Symbol, the United States Air Force Academy logo to our premier aerial demonstration fighter jets - the Thunderbirds logo. Our most recent registered trademark occurred in early 2022, which is one of our U.S. Space Force vertical logo versions where text "USSF" is placed directly below the Delta. 

In all cases, our team serves as the front line defense for the DAF brand through vigilant guarding of all our trademarks. To view Dept. of the Air Force active trademark registrations, click the following link: DAF Active Trademark Registrations.
