To change information
Description
On a ultramarine blue stylized spearhead with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border, 3 5/8 inches (9.21 cm) in height and 2 7/16 inches (6.19 cm) in width overall, a golden orange phoenix, enflamed of yellow and red, below an ultramarine blue terrestrial globe gridlined and fimbriated yellow surmounted by a lightning flash bend sinister wise yellow.

Symbolism
Ultramarine blue and golden orange are the colors traditionally used by Aviation units, with which the Air Traffic Services Command is associated. The spearhead shape, adapted from the Special Operation Command insignia, refers to the Area Traffic Service’s area of tactical missions. It also denotes the forward thrust motion of the army aviation assets to operate safely and effectively. The phoenix, a mythological bird, after being consumed by flames arose anew from the ashes; symbolizes the rebirth of Air Traffic Services into the Command. The terrestrial globe alludes to the worldwide scope of the Air Traffic Services’ mission and the sphere of influence of the Air Traffic Services Command. The lightning flash represents Army readiness and the striking speed of the Command’s signal background.

Background
The insignia was approved on 31 October 2003. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-859).
