1 - 5 star custom Veterans Service Flags

We make Veterans Service Flags using two methods.

1) High quality wool blended felt (70% wool/30% rayon) and layered with a special heat transferable flock (the white and blue stars). Fading:  These will fade more quickly if displayed in a window with direct sunlight. Over time, any fabric will fade or begin to break down from the exposure to sunlight.

2) Nylon panels stitched together with stars and lettering embroidered on to the nylon fabric. Fading:  These are more fade resistant than the traditional wool felt Service Flag, but will in time begin to fade as a result of constant exposure to sunlight.  This is a better choice if the window you will display your flag will be exposed to direct sunlight.

 Service Flags are 8 inches in width X 15.2 inches long. Each flag includes a chainette tassel and gold cord, suction cup, pamphlet & 30 day no-hassle warranty.  They are indoor display (from a window facing out or other indoor location).  Your satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  We ship via USPS priority mail. 

About the Veterans Service Flag

The Veterans Service flag is a derivative of the Service flag (an official banner authorized by the Department of Defense for display by families who have members serving in the Armed Forces during any period of war or hostilities).

After the United States became engaged in the war against terrorism, the Service flag's popularity rebounded.  Families across the nation began displaying the Service flag again to honor and recognize their spouses, parents, siblings or children serving in the Armed Forces.

Many Americans also wanted to show their respect and appreciation to other patriotic Americans who had previously served in the Armed Forces - especially to those who served during a previous armed conflict. The Veterans Service flag was created to distinguish and honor persons who have faithfully served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

The basic concept of the Veterans Service flag is the same as the Service flag with distinct and original symbolic modifications to clearly distinguish between those who are actively serving during a current conflict, and those who served previously in the Armed Forces.

In keeping with the symbolism of the American Flag, the colors of the Veterans Service flag symbolize the following: 

Red - Valor, Hardiness and the blood spilled by Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom;
Blue - Justice, Vigilance and Perseverance;   
White Star - Purity, Liberty and Freedom;  

How to Display The Veterans Service Flag

The Veterans Service flag is an indoor flag and should be flown facing out from the front window of the home or organization, or hanging on an inside wall of a home or office as a decoration and tribute to the Veteran.  The era, conflict, branch of service and name of veteran may also be displayed to personalize the tribute.

If the U.S. flag or Service flag is also displayed with the Veterans Service flag, the U.S. flag and Service flag should be of equal or greater proportions and should take the place of honor above the Veterans Service flag.

Multiple white stars represent multiple family members who are Veterans.
