175th Maintenance Squadron Patch

Symbolism: Ultramarine blue and golden yellow are the Air Force colors and symbolize that the unit is a part of the Air Force. The shield of the Great Seal of Maryland identified the squadron as a Maryland Air National Guard unit. The four lightning flashes represent the avionics, field, munitions, and operational maintenance branches of the unit. The lightning flashes converge, demonstrating the squadron's command and staff functions and its unity of purpose. The two aircraft commemorate the unit's long history of service. Background: Designed by Tech. Sgt. Michael Montalvo. Approved as official by the U.S. Air Force for the 175th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance Squadron on 13 September 1989. Redesignated for the 175th Maintenance Squadron in 1994.
