Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The chess piece, a black winged knight, represents strategic thought and careful analysis symbolically linking the unit with the Pegasus on the insignia of its parent unit. The Ionic column represents steadfast support to the mission. The vertical line represents the militia of the "Old Line State," with the spikes indicating the unit is forever advancing in the accomplishment of its mission. The motto refers to the unit's status as an integral part of the Maryland National Guard. Background: Designed by Master Sgt. Wayde Minami and approved by the Air Force 19 March 2003.
