The mission of the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron is to showcase the pride and professionalism of the United States Navy and Marine Corps by inspiring a culture of excellence and service to country through flight demonstrations and community outreach. On April 24, 1946, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Chester W. Nimitz ordered the formation of a flight exhibition team that would showcase naval aviation. Officially known as the U.S. Naval Flight Demonstration Squadron, they formally adopted the nickname “Blue Angels” in 1949 when the squadron commander designed the Blue Angels insignia which is nearly identical to the one in use today.
