This service flag, also known as a blue star flag is 8 x 15" and mounted on a crossbar with gold cord & tassels. Two blue, embroidered stars.

Although rarely displayed since World War II, the Service flag can now be seen hanging from the windows of homes with family members serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The Service Flag, also known as the "Son in Service" flag was commonly displayed during World War I and II in patriotic support of our armed forces fighting for freedom. The flag is authorized to be flown during any period of war or hostilities in which the Armed Forces of the United States may be engaged, for the duration of such period of war or hostilities.

Each blue star on the flag represents a family member serving in the Armed Forces. The blue star is replaced (or covered) with a gold star to represent a member killed or who dies while serving their country during the war or hostilities.
