Earlier this year, the often mocked but actually quite important new branch of the military, the Space Force, unveiled an image that was suspiciously reminiscent of Star Trek. Now the Space Force has unveiled a new, sharper graphic that represents the actual logo of the troop – and an associated motto: "Semper Supra" or "always on top".
To put it bluntly, the picture unveiled in January, which everyone thought looked a lot like Starfleet, is the seal for the Space Force branch of the military. The new, simpler one is the logo for the entire organization, with which we will see communication and recruitment under the brand name. You can tell them apart as the new one looks like the Pontiac logo.
The Space Force explained the various elements of the logo in a series of tweets. It's not exactly esoteric stuff, but it's nice to know that the chrome is there for a reason, and not just because it looks cool.
The silver edge of the upward-facing delta shape, they said, "means defense and protection from all enemies and threats emanating from space."
The middle part is black because it “embodies the vast darkness of space. Some feel fear and fear, but we prefer to be inspired and face the challenge. "
And in the middle is a star. It is Polaris, the North Star, that “leads. That is why it is in the middle of our logo. "
The four beveled "beveled elements" symbolize the four armed forces that support the branch: Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines. They are spiky because they make them look a bit like rockets that shoot into space.
The motto: "Semper Supra", which means "always on top", can either be interpreted as calming or as threatening, depending on which end of the Space Force you point to. It means "establishing, maintaining, and preserving" the US presence in space, and of course it is nice for a local soldier to believe that they receive operational support from the ever-outstanding Space Force. For others, it is reminiscent of spy satellites or orbital lasers.
Expect this logo to be seen a lot in the next few years as this new office matures and recruits.
More importantly, the Space Force has horses:
You've heard of an MW🐕, but what about an MW🐎?
