The Air Force Academy crest

The Air Force Academy crest was created by Brig Gen Robert F. McDermott, Dean, in 1963. The emblem is symbolic of the Air Force Academy. Against a shield divided horizontally into three sections, white representing clouds, brilliant blue representing sky, and black indicating outer space, two geometric forms (symbolic of the upward motion of flight and the dual mission of Educational Development and Training for Military Leadership) point upward to the North Star symbol which represents the ultimate achievement.
