The Raven Command Challenge Coin is filled with heraldry and symbols that express our creed, beliefs and values. The following are the descriptions of these symbols and what we hold each to represent.
Stars represent Excellence, and the numerous stars mean we expect effort and results in everything we do.
The laurel wreath signifies Success and Victory.
The Raven stands for Providence and Destiny. When over a globe with wings displayed it also signifies Dominion and Protection over all in our Charge.
The trident over a map shows Dominion over the Sea of Stars and Space we Sail.
The sword represents Strength, Justice and Honor. The lightning bolt stands for Swiftness and Power. The two crossed and pointed upwards represent Military Honor and that we are Ready for a Fight.
The Greek helmet signifies Wisdom, Strength and Leadership.
The colors signify: Gold – intelligence; Black – dependability; and Red – the Warrior’s color.
The words “BFC Raven Command” are our Ship, our Creed and our Responsibility. The very word “Raven” means “Strategist in Battle”.
The motto “NIL SATIS NISI OPTIMUM” means nothing but the best is acceptable, in word or deed.
The use of the BSG phrase demonstrates Respect for the Past, along with our ties and debt to it. “SO SAY WE ALL” reflects our commitment to our missions, our beliefs and to each other.
