Since 1947, this has been the national emblem, or roundel, that has adorned U.S. military aircraft. From Air Force One down to the utilitarian Predator drone, this roundel lets foreign nations know that the U.S. is in the fight. Along with the white star on a blue disk that has been a part of American military aviation emblems since 1917, this modern design features flanking red and white stripes that are reminiscent of the United States national colors. While on many current military aircraft the colors may be changed to subdued hues of grey to adhere to camouflage requirements, this emblem is located someplace on nearly every aircraft in the U.S. arsenal.
The colors of this modern U.S. national roundel symbolize our uniquely American values. The white of the star and bars symbolizes virtue and purity. The disks blue field recalls our vigilance, perseverance, and sense of justice. Finally, the red is symbolic of that uniquely American quality of hardiness and vigor-in the air, at sea, on the ground, or even in space.
