A falcon is a symbol for aspiration, for victory, ascension through all planes and for freedom. The Falcon also is a representation of the Egyptian God Horus, the all-seeing.

As a symbol, a falcon has some meanings that are similar of those of the hawk (who also is a messenger of the Gods) and the Owl.

In the context of Ufology, and more specifically of the Aviary, Falcon allegedly was the code name used to refer to Rick Doty. He did play the part of 'Falcon' in the 1988 Kodak-produced network television documentary "UFO Cover-up Live". Several researchers, including Grant Cameron, however, claim Doty only played the part in the documentary while the real falcon was somebody else.
