The Air Force Seal, Symbol and MottoThe seal of the United States Air Force is one full of meaning. The seal is encircled by thirteen stars, representative of the original thirteen colonies. It features the unwaveringly American symbol of the bald eagle with its wings spread to represent constant readiness. The bald eagle itself is known for its striking power in the air, a characteristic that is emulated by the Air Force. Within the eagle's wingspan are three of the thirteen stars; these three stars are intended to portray the Army, Navy, and Air Force which comprise the three departments of the National Defense Establishment. Behind the eagle is a cloud, symbolic of sky and in the eagle's talons is a wreath with the Air Force's colors of silver and blue alternating. Below the eagle is a shield bearing a heraldic thunderbolt, another symbol of striking power in the air. Another symbol that is synonymous with the United States Air Force is the Hap Arnold symbol. This was the symbol of the United States Army Air Corps which predates the Air Force. The United States Air Corps operated as part of the United States Army until 1947 when it was declared its own department and renamed the Air Force. Until this time the Hap Arnold, which features a white star with a red circle in the center and gold wings to its left and right, was the official emblem of the Air Corps. Today, it is still easily recognizable as an Air Force symbol and is even the basis for the new symbol used by the Air Force. The Air Force has also had several mottos over the years. Their Latin motto, “Uno Ab Alto,” translates to “One From on High.” In 2010, through months of research, the Air Force developed a new motto meant to encapsulate all Airmen from the ground up: “Aim High... Fly-Fight-Win.” The new motto is truly a call to action with “Aim High” meant to trigger a response of “Fly-Fight-Win” from any other Airmen in the vicinity.
