Please read below. We want to have ONE main titan logo and the separate Titans which represent each section! Thank you for everyone's hard work!
The 7RS is comprised of multiple sections in order to fulfill the demands of and support our reconnaissance mission. They are the commander support staff (CSS), operations, maintenance, communications, security forces and supply; because we are so diverse, we picked the mythological group called the Titans to be our mascot.
This design will be put on t-shirts, posters, mugs, and other various products to be sold. The proceeds of which will go directly back to squadron to support morale, welfare, and recreation events, such as our yearly holiday party.
Each section of the squadron fills a unique role, and has therefore been assigned a Titan. We would like the spirit of these Titans and their roles to be represented in the winning logo. We intend to put this logo on our squadron patch, coin, and other merchandise such as T-shirts.
CSS: Cronus- Supreme ruler of the Titan Gods & Goddesses of time and the ages.
Operations (Pilots): Hyperion- Titan Lord of light, name means "He who watches from above", associated with the sun.
Aircraft Maintenance: Iapetus- God of mortal life/death and craftsmanship, name means "piercer", often pictured with a spear.
Communications: Mnemosyne- Goddess/Guardian of memory and inventor of words, name means “remembrance” in Greek.
Security Forces (Police): Themis- Prophetic Goddess of Justice and order, the personification of the order of things established by law, custom, order and equity. Commonly represented on coins holding a pair of scales (scales of justice) and horn of plenty. Name means “divine law”, “that which is put in place.”
Supply: Theia- Goddess of the sun and endower (supplier) of gold, silver and jewels. Mother of sight, she possessed the gift of prophecy. Name simply means “Goddess” or “divine”.
We would also like our squadron history and Air Force heritage represented. In addition we'd like our location in Sicily represented as an acknowledgement of the cultural heritage and beauty in which we are surrounded daily. We'd like the Titans to illustrate the diversity of the squadron, not just in job description, but also in gender, race, and ethnicity. The designs need to be professional, respectful, and tasteful in the representation of the Titans. This will be used in formal military situations, as well as decoration for our squadron.
We invite artistic interpretation as well as modernization to match our modern mission. We are also be interested in follow on designs in the future that are in the same theme from the winning designer.
We've provided some pictures below of the squadron shield/patch we wear and display in the squadron, a few pictures of the RQ-4 Global Hawk, a current patch design our pilots wear, and a 7 RS squadron photo in front of 2 of our global hawks for reference.
