The Service Flag is authorized by the DoD for display during wartime by families with members who are serving. The one blue star symbolizes hope and pride for each immediate family member in the armed forces. The tradition dates to World War I, when CPT Robert L. Queissner designed the banner to honor sons serving on the front lines. On 9/24/17, the flag was introduced to Congress. Banners began to appear in the windows of homes across the country, to symbolize loved ones in service.
