Fifth Air Force supports the defense of Japan, advances U.S. interests, and promotes broader Indo-Pacific security and stability by advancing air, space and cyberspace capability and integration to ensure U.S. Air Force forces are ready to respond rapidly to crisis or contingency.
Fifth Air Force Airmen are resilient, lethal warfighters who build partnerships to advance interoperable air, space, and cyberspace capabilities in order to ensure the stability and security of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific.

Azure, the constellation of the Southern Cross consisting of five mullets Argent, between a comet, the head a hurt charged with a mullet charged with a torteau encompassed with a flaming trail arced to sinister three streamers of the third, the Arabic number " 5" Or; all within an annulet of the like, all within a diminished bordure of the last. Attached below the disc a White scroll edged with a narrow Yellow border and inscribed "FIFTH AIR FORCE" in Blue letters.
Blue and yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The small stars suggest the constellation, Southern Cross, and also reflect the unit's heritage of World War II campaigns in the South Pacific islands. The Air Force star insignia on a comet with three tails represents the aircraft markings of the unit and denotes three primary missions: bomb, fighter, and airlift. The numeral "5" reflects the unit's numerical designation.
