Gold star banners became popular during World War I where banners and flags with a white background and red rectangular border and gold star represented a soldier killed in action. Each gold star represented one soldier. The color gold is used to show the value of each life lost. Gold stars came to represent a fallen soldier before the introduction of gold star banners. In 1918, upon a suggestion by the Women’s committee of National defense, a black arm band adorned with a gold star was approved by President Woodrow Wilson to represent soldiers killed in action. The tradition continued and is now displayed in the form of gold star banners or flags.
Our Gold star banners are made of high quality satin and are attached to a gilded gold bar with spearheads on either side. The 8" x 15" banners come with a gold fringe along the bottom and a gold cord and tassel attached.
