Ceiling fan blades for low speed fan operation. The blades have a positive twist at the root motor portion of the blade and a slightly twisted rounded tip. The chord of the blades taper down from the root to the rounded tip, and have a tapered airfoil from the aft forward aft edge to the trailing edge. The airfoil has a combination of a rounded leading edge with sharp trailing edge, and a square leading edge and rounded trailing edge. The blades can be twenty inches in length and twenty-six inches in length, and be used in ceiling fans having two, three, four or more blades in a ceiling mount. The ceiling fan blades are optimized to operate in ceiling fans running at low speed ranges of approximately 50 to approximately 200 revolutions per minute(rpm) with an enhanced axial airflow which provide substantial energy savings and increased air flow over conventional flat planar ceiling fan blades.
