New 361 (Gateshead) Squadron Badge

Time for a change...

After many years of having a Bulldog on our squadron badge the time has come to introduce a new emblem which is more appropriate to our location in Gateshead.

Our new badge incorporates the Angel of the North- the massive iconic sculpture by Anthony Gormley which is seen by many thousands of motorists as they approach Gateshead from the South and a new squadron motto "Aspire & Achieve" which encompasses what the Air Cadet Organisation is all about.

The Angel of the North also has wings, which is more relevant to an organisation which aims to get its members flying. (Although we all hope that the Angel of the North itself remains firmly rooted to the ground...)
