Portuguese shield-style Coat of Arms in sky-blue with a winged sword (that represents the Command of Aeronautics) in its middle. Below, against a sea-blue background, there is a hawk (with stretched-out wings and its head turned right, symbolizing freedom, victory and power) which is on top of the globe, showing the oceans in blue, the continents in yellow, the vegetation in dark green and the meridians and parallel lines in black. The globe is supported by a yellow and brown cradle. Across the hawk’s breast, there is a small sea-blue shield with the CABW’s white monogram in the middle of it. CABW stands for Comissão Aeronáutica Brasileira em Washington, (Brazilian Aeronautical Commission in Washington, D.C.), which appears over the globe.
