Symbolism

Badge

The blue disc alludes to the Royal Canadian Air Force. The snowy owl is indigenous to the area where the squadron is based. Owls are also perceived to be wise and intelligent, two essential qualities for software engineers. The scroll represents a roll of computer paper, once commonly printed in green and white, and symbolizes the unit’s role in producing software.

Motto

This Latin phrase means “To seek with wisdom”.
