The insignia was designed by the Walt Disney Studios during World War II
to symbolize the squadron’s mission of searching for enemy submarines
operating in groups called “wolfpacks” in the Caribbean.
In December 1942, the commanding General, Army Air Force,
approved the design as the official insignia.

In 1959, the 32nd became the only USAF unit in the world authorized
to bear the Royal Crest of another country,
when the Crown and Wreath were added to the famed “wolfhound” design.
The crown symbolizes royalty, while the wreath and oranges represent an orange tree,
a traditional symbol of the Dutch Royal Family – The House of Orange –
who are direct descendants of William of Orange,
the first Prince of the Netherlands.

This unique honor was granted in recognition of the unit’s contribution
to the defense of The Netherlands and graphically illustrates
the 32nd’s closes tiers with the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
