Blue Star Service Banners (4"x5")
The tradition of the Blue Star Service Banner dates back to World War I. Mothers of young soldiers hand stitched red, white, and blue flags to hang in their windows as a sign that a loved one had gone to fight in the war. The flag design was simple, a white flag with a red border and a single blue star for each family member in Service. Each flag could hold up to six stars. If a family member unfortunately lost their life in the line of duty, the mother would stitch a gold star over one of the Blue stars to honor her fallen loved one. 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.
