Conder Flag Donates Honor & Remember Flag Set to The Living Military Museum at Richard's Coffee Shop
Conder recently donated an Honor & Remember flag in a ceremony before a crowd of veterans. This wonderful place serves as a gathering place for veterans and has a unique display of items from all of the American wars.
Patriot Guard members visited Conder Flag during the annual veteran flag giveaway promoted by Larry's Look on TV 36 in November. Bill Cook aka "Biker Bill" suggested to Conder that this museum needed an Honor and Remember flag for the Blue and Gold Star mothers. Jane Conversano, a marketing representative from Conder presented the flag set in a special ceremony pictured above.
The Honor and Remember flag is distinctive, yet simple. Each detail on the flag is a symbol with a distinct meaning.
The Red Field represents the blood spilled by brave men and women in America's military throughout our history, who willingly gave their lives so that we all would remain free.
The Blue Star represents active service in military conflict. This symbol originated with World War I, but on this flag, it signifies service through all generations from the American Revolution to present day.
The White Border surrounding the gold star recognizes the purity of sacrifice. There is no greater price an American can pay than to give his or her life in service to our country.
The Gold Star signifies the ultimate sacrifice of a warrior in active service who will not return home. Gold reflects the value of the life that was given.
The Folded Flag signifies the final tribute to an individual life that a family sacrificed and gave to the nation.
The Flame is an eternal reminder of the spirit that has departed this life, yet burns on in the memory of all who knew and loved the fallen hero.
There is a petition to Congress establish this symbol as a national remembrance flag. So far, the following states have adopted this: DE, LA, NC, MD, OK, OR, OR, PA, UT, VA, KS, AZ, MO, SC, and NJ.
