Description

Honor the sacrifices made by our servicemen with this POW/MIA flag, a dedication to all those who have gone missing or been captured in service of our country.

The iconic POW/MIA flag was created in 1972 to honor prisoners of war and fallen heroes from the Vietnam War. For decades it’s been flown as a meaningful tribute to our veterans and servicemen, usually on holidays such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day. But recent changes have altered the usual schedule for flying the flag. On Veterans Day 2019, President Donald Trump signed a federal law requiring that the POW/MIA flag be flown at all major military institutions and national war memorials year-round.

The POW/MIA flag also stands out as one of the most unique POW flags for sale, as it is available with double-sided construction.

Choose from nylon or polyester for outdoors or sleeve & fringe for indoor use. Respect the fringe, please don’t post indoor flags on the wall.

Fly this high-quality, American-made flag proudly and help ensure that no heroes are ever forgotten.

  • Made in America
  • Authentic design
  • Grommet version sewn with a heading and grommets
  • Indoor version made with a sleeve for mounting and choice of fringe

POW Flag Etiquette

When flying the POW/MIA flag on the same flag pole as the United States flag, it should always be flown below the United States flag, never above. It should never be larger than the United States flag. When flying on a separate pole, always make sure your POW/MIA flag is directly to the right of the United States flag. As a general rule, the flag should be flown on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, National POW/MIA Recognition Day (3rd Friday in September), and Veterans Day.
