Historical note

The 90th Bomb Group, known as the Jolly Rogers, consisted of the 319th, 320th, 321st, and 400th Squadrons. They were recognized by people by the skull and cross bones on their tail. To distinguish between the squadrons, each background was a different color. For the 319th, the background was blue, the 320th had red, green was for the 321st, and black was used by the 400th.
