Station Badge

RAF Fylingdales Station Badge

The Station badge appropriately shows the White Rose of York surmounted by a Viking Fire Warning Basket. In ancient times these baskets could be found all along the East coast of England, mounted on vantage points such as church towers and hilltops. They were lit as soon as invading forces were sighted out at sea so that the local population could be warned of attack. The Fylingdales motto 'Vigilamus' translated means, 'We are Watching'.
