Meaning and history

Air Force Falcons Logo history


To better understand the evolution of the university’s brand identity, we should probably start the story from the earliest Air Force Falcons logo and compare it to the current one.
The emblem unveiled in 1954 featured a falcon with its wings spread wide. The creature had a gray lightning shape in its paws. On the background, there was a pale bluish roundel encircled with the name of the academy.
In 1963, the logo was redrawn from scratch. There was now a completely different falcon, although it also had its wings spread and was holding a bolt of lightning in its claws. The bird was drawn in blue and white.
The 1995 emblem added yellow, gray, and black details. The falcon now seemed to be moving faster, and a totally new wordmark was introduced.
Eventually, in 2004, the Air Force Falcons logo was reduced to just to letters, “A” and “F.”
