Blue Star Banners
What is a Blue Star Banner?
A Blue Star Banner is a red and white flag with up to 5 blue stars representing family members serving in the Armed Forces.
What Makes a Blue Star Family?
Not every military family is a Blue Star family. That is because those authorized to fly the Blue Star flag are those who have immediate family members who serve in the military during a time of conflict.
You qualify to receive and fly a Blue Star Banner if one or more of your immediate family members are actively serving. Immediate family includes:
- Stepchildren, stepsiblings, half-siblings
- Adopted parents
- Adopted children and adopted siblings of a U.S. service member.
