http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_upshot/20100707/od_yblog_upshot/the-secret-code-in-u-s-cyber-commands-logo

The sequence on the logo is 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a

It looks as if it's a 16 byte series of 8 bit binary numbers represented by hexademimal pairs - 9e c4 c1 etc.
There ain'ta no sanity clause, and there ain'ta no centrifugal force Šther.

It's not a code.  It's just the MD5 hash of the United States Cyber Command mission statement.

See:http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/07/08/cyber_command_crest_md5/
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Thanks Lee!

The Yahoo guys must have been using the wrong version of the mission statement.

BTW - maybe you can explain how a hash works.

Probably easiest to read this:
