A graphic like the Top Hat, Felix the Cat and this Up Arrow were early forms of squadron identifiers. About 1945, a more recognizable form began for quick identification.

On http://www.pmcn.de/English/USN%20Markings%20II/USN%20Markings%20II.htm,
scrolling down we see

Directive Jan. 26, 1945: Marking on tail and wings now denotes the carrier (i.e. CV-17 Bunker Hill, Air Group 84).

Starting at http://www.pmcn.de/English/USN%20Markings%20I/USN%20Markings%20I.htm
there are three links of interest (Markings part I, II, III)
