HONOR & REMEMBER FLAGThe Honor and Remember Flag was created to serve as a national symbol that specifically acknowledges the sacrifice of men and women in the United States Armed Forces who have given their lives for their country in over two centuries of American History.
The Honor & Remember flag was developed by the Honor and Remember organization. The goal of this organization is to promote broad national awareness of the flag, so that military, government and educational facilities as well as households throughout the country would begin flying the Honor and Remember Flag to promote recognition of our nation's fallen warriors.
Annin Flagmakers gives back a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these flags to the Honor and Remember organization. They, in turn, use these funds to support the effort of donating an Honor and Remember Flag to those families who have lost a loved one in military service to America.
The Red Field represents the blood spilled by brave men and women in America’s military throughout our history, who gave their lives so that our nation would remain free.
The White Field below the gold star recognizes the purity of sacrifice. There is no greater price an American can pay than to give his or her life in service to our country.
The Blue Star represents active service in military conflict. This symbol originated with World War I, but on this flag it signifies service in all wars from the American Revolution to present day.
The Gold Star signifies the ultimate sacrifice of a warrior in active service who will not return home. Gold reflects the value of the life that was given.
The Folded Flag signifies the final tribute to an individual life presented to the family for their significant loss.
The Flame is an eternal reminder of the spirit that has departed this life yet burns on the memory of all who knew and loved the fallen hero.
We will always Honor their selfless sacrifice and Remember them individually by name.
