Mustangs to Warthogs

EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska--The falcon literally and figuratively conveys a sense of the attack; symbolizing to all members of the squadron the single-minded attention to the primary mission for which they all must strive. The object of the attack is not shown, suggesting thereby the limitless range of fruitful targets for our efforts in peace and war. The circular background represents the unity of purpose to which the 355th Fighter Squadron is dedicated, with each part equally important to the whole. The blue disc suggests the sky where the squadron?s power holds sway, the gray band and the stars represent the individuality and contrast that each member of the squadron expresses within the framework of the united team. The blue and yellow colors show we are a unit of the United States Air Force.
