Cadet Squadron Six's Patch Heraldry

"Bull Six" 1956

CS-06 Patch

The bright red patch, a circle bordered in white, shows a large, boldly printed white "6_ located in the center. A ferocious black bull, snorting a white cloud, leaps through the circular opening at the bottom of the six.

The huge black bull, the Sixth Squadron’s mascot symbolizes strength, courage, determination, perseverance and tenacity. The bright red background adds to the glory of the bull.

This is the original squadron patch.
