The dominant figure of the insignia is a sil-
houette representing a modern ammunitionship.
The silhouetted helicopter represents our vertical
replenishment capability. The butte in the back-
ground is emblematic of our name and relation
with Butte, Montana. The chain which encloses
the plaque is symbolic of our vital link with the
combatant forces and BUTTE's capability of ammun-
ition delivery around the world. The four stars
in the bottom half of the circle represents BUTTE's
administrative assignment to Commander, Service
Squadron F OUR, the two above, her primary
assignment under the operational control of Com-
mander, SECOND Fleet. The total of six stars is
emblematic of her primary area of deployment, the
Mediterranean, under the operational control of
Commander, SIXTH Fleet.
The color scheme is elementary. Red is indica-
tive of the ever present danger in handling explo-
sive materials. Yellow is symbolic of the caution
used in handling ammunition and of BUTTE's
ability to be on any horizon for delivery to the
fleet. Blue represents the sea.
