The Astral Crown is a gold crown surmounted with eight low points. The centrals and laterals points are topped with a star, with an unspecified number of points, between two wings.
Its creation became necessary after the founding of the Royal Air Force in the UK, because there was no Roman military award device for Aerial warfare equivalent to the Naval crown for navies and the Camp crown for armies.
