The Combined Force Space Component Command (CFSCC) emblem depicts a winged tiger leaping forward to deliver combat relevant space capabilities to Combatant Commanders, Coalition partners, the Joint Force, and the Nation from the ultimate high ground – space. The globe is representative of the worldwide forces and geographically dispersed operations centers from which the command gains its strength. The tiger itself pays homage to Fourteenth Air Force’s heritage as the World War II-era American Volunteer Group “Flying Tigers” and recognizes the fact that Headquarters Fourteenth Air Force formed the core of the CFSCC staff. The tiger’s stylized wings represent the command’s charge to rise above all adversaries; its bared fangs and exposed claws represent the lethal military advantage space provides Joint and Coalition warfighters; and its crystal-clear, blue eyes represent the command’s clarity of vision and constancy of mission. The ellipses represent the orbital paths of satellites traveling around the Earth, with a deliberate crossing over the geographic location of the CFSCC Headquarters at Vandenberg Space Force Base, California. The satellites themselves are symbolically depicted as four-pointed stars moving across a black, night sky. The overarching color scheme suggests the muted color pallet of deep space and mirrors the overarching color scheme of the United States Space Command emblem.
