Service Banner
Displayed by immediate family members of a person serving in the Armed Forces during a period of war. He or She does not need to be stationed overseas in order for his or her family to display the banner. Organizations and business may also display the Service Banner if they have members serving in the Armed Forces during a period of war. Service Banners are made of nylon material, are fully sewn with gold fringe at the bottom. Stars are blue and borders are red. HISTORY OF THE SERVICE BANNER: The tradition of the Service Banner dates back to World War I. Mothers of young soldiers hand stitched red, white, and blue banners to hang in their windows as a sign that a loved one had gone to fight in the war. The banner design was simple, a white flag with a red border and a single blue star for each family member in Service. One, two and three stars were common, but each flag could hold up to six stars. This tradition was later extended to the wives and families of service men serving during the war. This tradition encountered a huge resurgence in World War II and again during the Korean War. Even during Desert Storm some U.S. ships sent service flags to the families of everyone aboard. The banner was designed by Captain R.L. Queisser and copyrighted in 1917. The copyright has since passed to the US Department of Defense, which regulates its manufacture.
