Symbolism is very important to us!

Our patch is a reflection of who we are.  

The Emblem of Abilene Composite Squadron is a disc of Ultramarine Blue, with a band of gold transitioning from dexter chief to sinister base emblazoned with a trio of three-bladed propellers.  There is a futuristic aircraft located at the sinister chief and a red cross at the dexter base. In the bottom scroll is our squadron designation “ABILENE COMPOSITE SQDN” and in the upper scroll is our motto “LIBERANDUM AB ALTO,” meaning rescue from above.  The blue background, being symbolic of our loyalty to the history and tradition of Civil Air Patrol, is symbolic of where we perform most of our missions. The yellow trim and band are symbolic of the excellence we pursue in executing our duties and reminds us to keep true to our three missions.  The red of the cross represents our passion for service to our nation while representing the emergency services missions so vital to life. The three red props across the band represent our patriotic spirit and devotion to Community, State, and Nation, while the three-bladed propeller reminds us of the missions we are charged to perform: Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs, and Emergency Services.  The white of the futuristic aircraft is symbolic of our benevolent mission to the country through the use of aerospace and the three tails remind us to remember the past, present, and future of the organization while performing our duties. The patch in whole reflects our close relationship with the 7th Bomb Wing, Dyess AFB, Texas, with whom we share community, the skies, and whose professionalism, readiness, and commitment we wish to embody.
