Star Service Banners
US Star Banners or Service Flags are the official banner that family members of service members can display.
The Blue Star banner is defined as a white field with a red border, with a blue star for your family member serving in the US Armed Forces during any period of war or hostilities in which the Armed Forces are actively engaged.
The Gold Star banner is displayed for a family member who has died during their service to our country. It is not necessary that the service member died in battle, but rather that they passed during their service.
