8th Special Operations Squadron
8th Special Operations Squadron emblem significance: Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The stylized blackbird conveys movement and flight. The flight direction is indicative of the squadron’s low-level mission. The body of the stylized blackbird reinforces the squadron’s unconventional warfare role and the operations during darkness. The wings symbolize the squadron’s unique CV-22 mission and the twin prop-rotors of the Osprey’s tiltrotor design.
