315 Fighter Squadron Patches

Images of patches for the 315 Fighter Squadron are below.  As I’ve come to learn, the 315th used a symbol of Bugs Bunny sitting on a cloud holding a machine gun.  Later in the war (around ’44?) the symbol was thought to be too humorous, and a new patch for the Crusaders was designed.  Here are some samples of the Bugs patch:

Finally, I’ve seen this patch.  Does anyone know what it represents? (Not the wings, the blue patch.)
