The design of culture: US Space Force emblems

ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) — In the halls of the Pentagon or on the grounds of any Space Force base, Guardians stand out from their peers because of their U.S. Space Force name tapes and the unique, colorful patches on their uniforms. Space Force emblems are distinctive and different from those of the other U.S. military branches. They are also essential to unit cohesion and esprit de corps and often highlight the heritage of individual units. While uniform patches have become familiar symbols of both the service and specific units, many Guardians may not know that unit emblems are based on the traditions of medieval heraldry and that the wearing of uniform patches in the U.S. military dates to the 19th century. The Space Force, moreover, has its own process and design standards for new units to acquire an official emblem that Guardians can proudly display on their sleeves. The emblem for Space Base Delta 1—which enables operations for eight of the nine Space Force deltas and more than 100 other mission partners across world-wide locations—is pictured above. The platinum border highlights its connection to Space Operations Command. USSF heraldry guidelines are outlined in DAFI 84-105, Organizational Lineage, Honors and Heraldry. Officially constituted organizations needing an official emblem should contact their appropriate history office.
