Symbolism
Blue and orange are the colors traditionally associated with the Aviation units. The Pegasus symbolizes the Brigade’s mission of flight and alludes to the unit’s location, Kentucky, the horse capital of the world. The arched blue chief suggests the horizon and the 63d Aviation’s determination to accomplish any mission. The arrowhead with star signifies readiness and constancy, pointing up indicating the direction to a higher standard. The two rows of stars, six and three, indicate the number “63,” the Brigade’s designation.
