The crest of 405 Long Range Patrol Squadron depicts an eagle's head facing to the sinister and holding in the beak a sprig of maple. Its motto refers to the fact that this was the first and only Royal Canadian Air Force  Pathfinder squadron. The eagle's head which faces the sinister suggests leadership, is derived from the pathfinder badge
