Delta and Motto



Note: The U.S. Space Force seal is reserved for internal, official use only and marked here to discourage unauthorized use. 


On a dark blue disc, between two constellations in white, a light blue globe grid-lined in silver surmounted by a silver delta both encircled diagonally by a white orbit ring, all beneath a white Northern star in the upper left portion of the disc and above the roman numerals “MMXIX” arching in white below. Encircling the disc is a dark blue designation band edged with an inner and outer border and between two deltas, the inscription “UNITED STATES SPACE FORCE” at top and “DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE” at bottom, all in white.

Dark blue and white combine to represent the vast recesses of outer space.  The Delta Wing evokes historic ties to the earliest days of the U.S. Air Force space community, and symbolizes change and innovation. It also represents all variations of space vehicles that support our National Defense Strategy and National Security Space Strategy.  Dark and light shades of grey within the delta embody the 24/7 operations of the Space Force, while the placement and upward orientation of the delta reveals the central role of the Space Force in defending the space domain.  The Globe represents the terrestrial home of the U.S. Space Force and it’s support to the joint warfighters.  The Elliptical Orbit [around the globe] signifies defense and protection from all adversaries and threats emanating from the space domain. It also represents ongoing interagency cooperation and allied partnerships.  The white Polaris symbolizes the guiding light of security and alludes to a constant presence and vigilance in space now and in the future.  Two clusters of small stars represent the space assets developed, maintained, and operated by the U.S. Space Force.  The three larger stars symbolize the Organize, Train, and Equip functions of the Space Force. 

The designed blazoned in full color on a circular dark blue background with the Roman numerals MMXIX (2019) representing the year of activation.  The designation band inscribed “UNITED STATES SPACE FORCE” above and “DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE” below, all in white.
