PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

POW/MIA - (double face) Nylon or Polyester

The history of the POW/MIA flag is rooted in the Vietnam War era. During the early 1970s, as the conflict raged on, the families and loved ones of American military personnel who were either prisoners of war (POW) or missing in action (MIA) began advocating for a symbol that could raise awareness and express their unwavering support.

The National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia played a pivotal role in the flag's creation, aiming to create a symbol that would convey the seriousness of the situation and the hope for the safe return of their missing or captured servicemen. The design they chose featured a black background with a solemn, kneeling soldier silhouette in the foreground, a white five-pointed star above symbolizing hope, and "POW" and "MIA" displayed below the image.

The U.S. Congress officially recognized the flag on July 18, 1990, mandating its display on specific designated days, including National POW/MIA Recognition Day, observed every third Friday in September. Since then, the flag has become a widely accepted symbol of national commitment to bringing missing or captured military personnel home and a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made in service to the country.
