United States Military Air Force Flag

Broward Flag Company also has military caps, Armed Forces desk sets and lapel pins

The National Security Act of 1947 called for the design of an official seal for the Department of the Air Force. President Truman officially approved the new seal on 1 November 1947.

By 1949 a project was underway at USAF Headquarters to develop an Air Force counterpart to the Army regulation on flags. From 1949 to 1950 work continued on the project and an Air Force organizational flag program based on the motif of organizational coats of arms was developed. The Department of the Air Force flag was to be represented by the shield and coat of arms from the Air Force Seal. Subordinate organizations would use a similar, but smaller, flag in which the shield would contain the organizational emblem and the scroll the name of the Air Force branch, organization, or unit. Dorothy G. Gatchell created the design of the Air Force flag.

The flag appeared publicly for the first time March 31 1951 at a parade in Washington honoring visiting French President Vincent Auriol. The design of the flag has not been changed since its introduction in 1951. It consists of The Air Force Coat of Arms and the encircling thirteen stars of the Air Force Seal; beneath the coat of arms shield is a scroll inscribed with the words "United States Air Force." The two dominate colors of the flag, ultramarine blue and golden yellow are the official Air Force colors. The 13 encircling stars represent the 13 original colonies. The Crest is made up of the the American bald eagle and symbolizes the United States airpower. The white clouds behind the eagle show the start of a new sky -- The Department of the Air Force. The Shield, right below the eagle and wreath, is divided horizontally into two parts by a nebuly line representing clouds. The top part of the Shield bears a golden yellow thunderbolt with flames in natural color which shows striking power through the use of aerospace. The background of the top part of the Shield is a light blue (representing the sky).
