The cartoon/photomontage below infers that when 7.(H)/AufklGr21 was formed from parts of 4.(H)/AufklGr21 in December 1940, they carried over the same rampant griffon emblem to serve as the emblem for this new staffel. (Peter Werry):

Hs126, with a variation of the emblem showing a dark background to the shield. Could this be when the emblem was in use by 7.(H)/AufklGr21?:

Post 7: According to the same source, page 85, this is also 4.(H)/AufklGr21, but was carried over to 7.(H)/AufklGr21.
