A Little History on the United States Air Force
"Aim High ... Fly-Fight-Win." The official motto of the United States Air Force.
The United States Air Force is a relatively new branch of national defense with its presence officially solidified on September 18th, 1947, when first secretary of the Air Force, W. Stuart Symington would take office. Airpower was a prominent proponent and such an important asset in the throes of World War II, with just under 70k U.S. airmen giving their lives to help win the war.
Airmen would push to be under their own guise and free from any outside control having been under the jurisdiction of the United States Army during this time. The result would be President Truman signing into effect the National Security Act on July 26th, 1947, while aboard his own personal aircraft. This would sew the formation of the mainstays of the Department of Defense that we have and know of today, consisting of the United State Army, the Central Intelligence Agency, Navy and the introduction of the Air Force as an independent sector.
Who designed Air Force flag?
The United States Air Force flag was designed by Dorothy G. Gatchell, a former heraldic consultant within the sector, although it also features elements designed by Arthur E. Dubois, such as the crest and the shield.
What does the Air Force flag look like? How many white stars are on the Air Force flag?
The Air Force flag is set on an Ultramarine Blue background with the United States Air Force coat of arms and thirteen white stars. The thirteen white stars are representative of the original thirteen colonies, with emphasis on the top three stars or grouping at the top standing for the Department of Defense, the United States Army, Navy and Air Force. An American bald Eagle is also featured on the flag as the national bird with a cloud formation that serves as a biblical metaphor for the foundation of the new department.
What are the 6 military flags?
The 6 primary military flags seen today consist of the United States Army, U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and the most recent induction, the United States Space Force.
