That's a strange patch doesn't give much in the way of clues even by their usual standards.

I dont think this is the mission patch as this looks more like the patch from ULA for the launch from SLC-37 (B)

The L-37 mission patch is a close-up of a knight with his sword handle.
The patch says "Cape Canaveral AFS" and has the Roman numerals XXXVII on it.

Lemme guess: the knight is actually Boba Fett...
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

I would post Bloom Counties Berkeley Breathed's take on Boba Fett's son, but I suspect Chris would censor me...

That said, I the wings in the launch patch. Nice subtle tie in with the mission patch.

Looks like a pretty standard eagle emblem to me.

More like a wedge-tail eagle (eaglehawk), but I think they wouldn't intend to put that it..

I was just joking when I said that.

ULA doesn't create launch patches, the USAF does.

Shouldn't launcher assembly start soon?

Delta IV launch campaigns appear to take longer than for Atlas V.  Correct?

Are the launch campaigns for the Delta IV Heavy longer than for the Delta IV Mediums?

Yes, see SFNs Delta 4-Heavy goes to launch pad for national security flight.
(I did a web browser search and have not yet found other sources.)

There's an interesting quote from Dr. Walt Lauderdale, technical director of the EELV generation and operations division within the Air Force’s Launch Systems Enterprise Directorate at the Space and Missile Systems Center in Los Angeles.
Quote
For those members of our industry and government launch vehicle team, it is our collective responsibility to keep the rocket — which is the only known natural predator of a satellite — at bay.
