Herald the mythological thunderbolt toward the future. Parade the honorary flag noting the coat of arms, 13 white stars and the Air Force Seal on a blue background. Made in the U.S.A
The flag was officially adopted by President Harry S. Truman on 26 March 1951. Elements of the flag’s design are used on the Department of the Air Force seal as well as the U.S. Air Force’s service mark. Dorothy G. Gatchell designed the flag itself, whereas the crest and shield that are featured on it were designed by Arthur E. Dubois. The flag’s design has remained unchanged since its introduction in 1951.
