Squadron Burgee Heraldry
In 1965 the Squadron was organized and in anticipation of submitting a formal petition for the charter
they wanted to ask for the approval of the pennant at the same time. Wes Sanford, Chairman of
the Ad Hoc Committee, was named to make tentative selections for the design. He received several but wished
more, so a contest was started, with wives of members also asked to submit designs. After much thought
and consideration the following design was selected:
(1) The colors Maize and Blue are for the University of Michigan.
M for the State of Michigan.
AA for Ann Arbor.
(4) The 5 legs for the 5 Great Lakes.
