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. Red signifies the neutrality of the armed forces medical services and the protection conferred to them. Silver gray conveys the unit’s dedication to science and knowledge-seeking. Black symbolizes the wisdom and strength necessary to provide care during times of both peace and conflict.
