Argent a lark volant proper;
JE TE PLUMERAI;
The badge is derived from the squadron nickname “Alouette” (lark in French). The position of the lark recalls a bomber over its target, ready to strike.
Meaning “I will pluck your feathers”. The motto is taken from the chorus of the French folk song “Alouette”.
