Air Force heraldry was displayed for attendees at a recent History Office presentation on emblems and patches at AFMC headquarters. Since early recorded history, warring tribes often carried banners or flags marked with emblems to represent factions and motivate their warriors to fight for the cause; it is to this historical tradition that we can trace the evolution of military emblems and patches. Air Force heraldry in the form of emblems and patches give Airmen a connection to the past and the motivation to live up to the proud lineage from which they come.
