Heraldry:

The design of the 1964 Class Ring is a result of a great deal of work on the part of many members of our class. As such it is both a product of our imaginations and a symbol of our aspirations.

The falcon, talons poised, represents the fighting spirit of the Class of 1964 and the Academy. His talons strike eagerly at the saber, representing cadet life, and at the lightning bolts, the challenges of our lives yet to come.

Polaris, the navigator's star, represents the guiding light of our future careers, the surety of purpose that characterizes our lives as cadets. The "VI" on the hilt of the saber indicates that the Class of 1964 is the sixth class to graduate from the Air Force Academy.

Our motto: "Pros Arentane," is unique. Pronounced "pros aretain", it means in short "Toward Arete." "arete" is an ancient Greek word which is the embodiment of the principles of the intelligent citizen-warrior of Athens - excellence, valor, virtue, manliness; the sum of good qualities that make character. Because of the ideals which it represents, we have chosen it for both our motto and our goal - as cadets, as officers, and as gentlemen.
