LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Civil Air Patrol was founded in December 1941, one week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, by more than 150,000 citizens who were concerned about the defense of Americas coastline. Under the jurisdiction of the Army Air Forces, CAP pilots flew more than one-half million hours, were credited with sinking two enemy sub- marines and rescued hundreds of crash survivors during World War II. On July 1, 1946, President Harry Truman established CAP as a federally chartered benevolent civilian corporation, and Congress passed Public Law 557 on May 26, 1948. CAP was charged with three primary missions aerospace education, cadet programs and emergency services. With the passage of Public Law 106-398 in October 2000, Congress provided that "The Civil Air Patrol is a volunteer civilian auxiliary of the Air Force when the services of the Civil Air Patrol are used by any department or agency in any branch of the federal government."
Please see the attached fact sheet for more details.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We are seeking a logo design in the shape of an US Air Force squadron/unit patch that can be later produced into an embroidered cloth patch for use on the CAP/USAF uniform.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target audience includes members of the Chicago Composite Squadron. Our audience also includes the United States Air Force, other CAP units and members, and also Charitable and emergency services organizations in the City of Chicago and abroad.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Please attempt to include a subtle representation of Chicagos former Meigs Field.
Please consider including a representation of the Chicago skyline.
Please consider including a CAP aircraft, or a pair of wings.
We prefer a modern design.
We like the idea of a top-down view of a CAP aircraft (e.g., prowler patch.jpg) perhaps flying over the City of Chicago with view of Meigs field.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
Our logo design must absolutely meet the USAF Heraldry Guidelines (http://www.afhra.af.mil/organizationalre...). We can help you with this!
There are many examples of current and historical USAF Unit/Squadron patches that can be found here (http://www.afhra.af.mil/organizationalre...).
As such, the logo/patch design must be based on the attached patch template ("disk5.gif").
The squadron motto must be included on the top rocker portion of the patch: Non Sibi Sed Patriae.
The squadron name must be included on the bottom rocker portion of the patch: Chicago Composite Squadron.
The patch must somehow incorporate a representation of the Chicago Flag.
Please avoid difficult to reproduce fonts and colors.
