Cadet Squadron 20

The patch is a royal blue circle bordered in black. An aggressive, strong troll stands in the middle. The green troll wears black trousers highlighted in violet. He is striding forward, stepping over the bright red three-dimensional Roman numeral "XX." "TROLLS" is inscribed behind the troll. In Scandinavian folklore trolls were supernatural giants who lived in the mountains. The 20th Squadron?s troll, a robust character, symbolizes the aggressiveness and confidence of the squadron. It also symbolizes the desire to succeed while simultaneously maintaining a good attitude and sense of humor. The three- dimensional nature of the Roman numeral and the word "TROLLS" signify enduring spirit. The areas of the patch surrounding the troll contains the four class colors. This patch (20th Squadron's second) was adopted in 1972.
