A Blue Star Service Banner displayed in the window of a home is a long standing tradition in America.

The banner was designed in 1917 by United States Army Captain Robert L. Queissner of the Fifth Ohio Infantry, in honor of his two sons who were serving in World War I. It was quickly adopted by the public and by government officials. On 1917-09-24, an Ohio congressman read into the Congressional Record:

"The mayor of Cleveland, the Chamber of Commerce and the Governor of Ohio have adopted this service flag. The world should know of those who give so much for liberty. The dearest thing in all the world to a father and mother ? their children."

The Service Banners are 8 inches in width X 15 inches long.

Each blue star represents one family member in the service.

Displayed by the immediate family members of a person serving in the Armed Forces during a period of war.

The family member who is in the Service does not need to be stationed overseas in order for his or her family to display the flag.

They are for indoor display (from a window facing out or other indoor location).

Each banner is made of nylon with embroidered star and includes a suction cup, chainette tassel and gold cord.
