You Are Not Forgotten
Created by the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia, the POW/MIA flag
has been a symbol of national concern for missing and captive military personnel for over 30 years. Originally developed to
commemorate those fighting in the Vietnam War, today it is a symbol for POW/MIAs in all U.S. Wars and is the only flag, aside
from the U.S. Flag, to have been flown over the White House.
In 1998, the 105th Congress passed the Defense Authorization Act that requires the POW/MIA flag to be flown by
military personnel on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, National POW/MIA Recognition Day, and
Veterans Day. Proper flag etiquette states the flag should be flown underneath the U.S. Flag and/or any state flag, and must be
equal to or smaller in size to the flag above it. In addition to the days listed above, civilians and government officials are
encouraged to fly this flag any day of the year and it can often be seen on a daily basis in front of small businesses,
schools or city halls.
