If you don't know thw story of the blue star banner here it is:

The history of the Blue Star Banner leads us back to World War I and Army Captain Robert. L Queissner. Captain Queissner designed this service flag to represent his two sons which were serving on the front line during this war. The Blue Star Banner became an unofficial way to show that your family had a child in the services. Over time the flag has transitioned to simply represent any family member who is serving in the Armed Forces at a time of war or hostility. In 1918 President Wilson added, from a suggestion by the Women's Committee of the Council of National Defense, that if the family member was lost while serving that the blue star was to be covered with a gold star. The blue would be symbolic of hope and the gold would symbolize sacrifice for freedom. In World War II the Blue Star Banner became very popular and could be seen in almost every window in which it was applicable. The Banner is traditionally hung in the window of a home as to allow all who pass the residence to view it and know the family has a member at war.

This banner measures 6"X8", and is hung on a monofilament fishing line (the pic shows chain, but I had problems with the chain breaking so I now use mono). I have a banner with two stars for $5 more (just let me know if you'd prefer that one and I will edit the listing)

These are made to order when you purchase. I will usually have it out the door within 2 days.
