Top 20 Military Flags To Remember Fallen Service Members

#1 US Army Veteran Flag

The flag’s olive green color with camo pattern is eye-catching while still retaining the Memorial Day spirit. To remind the public of which service branch you are honoring, the Army Star logo is absolutely needed. The flag also shows your appreciation in both May and November because of its message (for Veterans Day). 

This is a house flag with an approximate size of 29.5” x 39.5”. It should attach perfectly to any flagstaff with just quick and easy installation. You can hang it on a porch, a patio, or a tree branch in the yard. Without a flagstaff, it would look beautiful on the wall. 

#2 ‘This We’ll Defend’ Flag

If you want something more prominent to fly proudly on the vertical flagpole, you should consider this option. The flag comes with grommets in order for you to mount it into the halyard. It is made with an additional goal to fly at half-staff in the mourning moments. 

In terms of design, Flagwix incorporates a well-known Army statement into this design to paint a picture of what message you want to spread. If you are in the US Army, you’ll know they say “This we’ll defend” as an official pledge. And the message is no doubt about the Army’s mission of protecting the United States and its civilians.

Memorial Day honors all service members who died in the line of duty or due to old age. However, it is not prohibited to honor members of only one military branch.

If you’ve lost someone who served in the United States Navy, this flag is designed to express your personal feelings.

The design is straightforward, with the US Navy logo prominently displayed in the flag’s center. In fact, the sapphire blue color with camo patterns on the backdrop immediately conjures up images of Navy soldiers.

Flagwix provides this flag to honor and remember the soldiers who died on the battlefields of the air. The clear image of a bald eagle flapping its wings says a lot about the strength and courage of our Air Force members.

It depicts what they did for the country as air fighters! Additionally, that spirit inspires Flagwix to incorporate a well-known slogan of this branch into the design — “Fly, Fight, Win.”

#8 ‘This Country Was Built With The Blood Of An American Soldier’ Flag

Because of its clear statement and visual art, this commemorative flag perfectly captures the spirit of Memorial Day. 

We like to think of May as a month dedicated to remembering fallen soldiers. They must be the most courageous to sign a contract to head toward those battlefields. But they must also be the toughest to save their brothers and sisters’ lives in the line of duty. 

If you are looking for not just a military branch flag but instead — a sentimental piece of hanging — we recommend this flag. In the size of 3×5 ft., the flag is expected to be flown on a vertical flagpole.

#9 ‘Remember and Honor’ Garden Flag

On Memorial Day, this garden flag with a cartoonish design is ideal for those looking for a lovely piece of art decor! Even if it’s already May, it’s never too early to fly such a flag.

When you hang a flag outside, you don’t just want to decorate the house or serve the ordinary purpose of an occasion. You also want to let people know that it’s time to focus on what the day has in store for them.

This flag is how you get the word out.

It goes without saying that the Christian faith is ingrained in most people of America, including many who served in the military. That’s what also inspires Flagwix to come up with the idea of creating this design. 

If you have a lost loved soldier who’s given their whole life to the hand of God — this flag is the message for both of you.

How To Display A Military Flag

Flying flags is a significant issue in the United States. So there are some fundamental rules you must follow when it comes to that. 

  1. Never fly those military flags or others above the American Flag
  2. Never fly other flags on the right side of the American flag facing the audience
  3. The American flag should never be smaller in size than any other flag flying together with it
  4. On special days, the flag must be flown at half-staff, according to the haff-staff calendar or orders from the President or State Governors. 

There are more rules to follow in the US Flag Code, but above are the most important things to take note of.
