We should all be proud of our airmen and women who devote their lives to our safety. What better way to show your support than by flying Air Force Flags.
History of the Air Force and the Air Force Flags
Prior to 1947 the US Army operated various air squadrons. Only after 1947, by act of congress, was the United States Air Force formed as a separate military branch. Today the USAF maintains a fleet of almost 6,000 aircraft and has over 300,000 active duty personnel. In addition to air superiority, the USAF is leading the fight on cyber warfare and preparing for high altitude (space) conflicts in the future.
The United States Air Force Flags were designed in the late 1940’s and adopted by President Truman in 1951. Air Force flags feature a blue background with a bald eagle above a crest, ringed by 13 white stars. A white cloud behind the American bald eagle represents new firmaments, while the design on the crest is suggestive of the ability to strike like lightning. The flag is specified in a 3:5 ratio.
