Proper use of the AF Symbol

Each component of the Air Force Symbol represents different aspects of the Air Force that creates the Air Force’s overall identity. Therefore, the Symbol should be displayed in a position of prominence and in a manner that brings positive attention to the Air Force. The Air Force Symbol should only be included in a product when it adds to the overall design and supports the mission of the Air Force. For more information visit
