What is the Honor and Remember Flag?

January 25, 2023

The Honor and Remember flag is a dedicated symbol of remembrance for our Fallen Service Members and recognizes the enduring sacrifice of their Families.

The Honor and Remember Flag's design is distinctive, yet simple. Each detail on the flag symbolizes an important part of the overall meaning of the flag’s message.

The Red Field represents the blood spilled by brave men and women in America's military throughout our history, who willingly gave their lives so that we all would remain free.

The Blue Star represents active service in military conflict. This symbol originated with World War I, but on this flag, it signifies service through all generations from the American Revolution to present day.

The White Border beneath and surrounding 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 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 that a family sacrificed and gave to the nation.

The Flame is an eternal reminder of the spirit that has departed this life yet burns on in the memory of all who knew and loved the fallen hero.

On January 21st, at the American Legion Auxiliary Department of Arkansas mid-winter conference, this Honor & Remember flag was presented to Bobbie Davis, Surviving Spouse of SGT David “Joe” Davis. SGT Davis served with the 4th Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment, 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team. On Sept 17th, 2006 SGT Davis died of injuries sustained when a makeshift bomb exploded near his Stryker Armored Vehicle during combat operations in Sadr City, Iraq.
