The patch, a gray circle with a black border, has in its center the "Pink Panther" outlined in black. He wears a blue flight jacket with a second lieutenant's insignia and holds a white helmet. He leans against the yellow and black numeral "36."

The Pink Panther depicts the cunning and sophistication every cadet strives for during his cadet career. The flight jacket, helmet and gold bars symbolize the cadet's two most immediate goals: a commission as a second lieutenant and a flying career. The fact that the panther is leaning against the "36" signifies that a cadet depends on the other members of the Squadron.

This is the squadron's original patch. The Pink Panther was chosen to adorn the squadron patch because of his popularity as a Saturday morning cartoon character.

The patch consists of a red "39" within the nucleus of a yellow atom. The atom is set on a dark blue circle, ringed by a silver border. At the bottom is the squadron motto, "Potentia Vincere", which is Latin for "The power to conquer". The atom represents the unlimited abilities in each squadron member, and the unity of the squadron as a whole. The colors represent the four classes, and the unified design represents the cooperation necessary among the classes to insure an effective squadron. This was the squadron's original patch, which was discontinued in 1980, but revived in 1991.
