The flag of the United States Air Force consists of the coat of arms, 13 white stars and the Air Force Seal, on a blue background. The 13 stars represent the 13 original colonies, the three star grouping at the top portray the three Departments of the National Defense Establishment (Army, Navy, and Air Force). The crest includes the American bald eagle, the cloud formation depicts the creation of a new firmament, and the wreath, composed of six alternate folds of silver and blue, incorporate the colors of the basic shield design. The Roman numerals beneath the shield indicate the year 1947, in which the Air Force was established.
This flag is made from a specially created nylon for outdoor use. It features a white polyester duck heading and brass grommets. Strong and durable, the special parachute cloth treatment reduces sun and chemical deterioration. The flag is acid dyed for long lasting color and includes canvas heading and grommets for hanging.
