Significance of the 4th Group Insignia

The spear is used to symbolize the Fourth Fighter Group, and the three divisions of the field are representative of the three squadrons of the group.

The flames at the base of the shaft are symbolic of jets. The three Eagle feathers attached to the head of the spear represent the three Eagle Squadrons of the Royal Air Force from which the Fourth Fighter Group was formed in 1942. The lion’s face (now a tiger’s) suggests the service in the British Royal Air Force of the officers and men who were with the original members of the group. The colors used are those of the Air Force – ultramarine blue and golden orange.
