This patch style evolved from two previous patches - associated with early Navy squadrons. This patch was eventually approved by the Office of the CNO in 1967, when the squadron was redesignated as VA-196. The ace of spade portrays the death-dealing blow of an A-6 squadron in combat. The devil represents the threat of the squadron to its enemies.
