The Memorial Day Foundation is dedicated to never forgetting those Americans who died serving their country in defense of freedom and liberty and their families who loved them and whom they loved.
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who gave their lives for our country. Memorial Day is not just another holiday. Help raise awareness and respect for Memorial Day and remember our Fallen Heroes by placing a Patriotic Memorial Day Window Flag in your front window or door during the month of May. Remember, May is National Remembrance Month.
This Flag symbolizes the patriotic ideals of Memorial Day.
The rifle with fixed bayonet pointing downward into the ground symbolizes a soldier who went down fighting, sacrificing his life for our country.
The boots represent the final march of the last battle.
The helmet and dog tags signify the fallen soldier.
Collectively these form what is known as The Battlefield Cross: a symbol of a soldier who has perished on the battlefield.
The flag as a backdrop symbolizes the Patriotism of our fallen heroes.
This tradition originated during the Civil War when a musket was turned upside down and stuck into the ground to mark the spot where a comrade died, making it easier to find the body after the battle. Over time this image has been used in every conflict and has developed into more than a marker. It is erected to the fallen by their comrades in arms to show honor and respect for the brave souls who gave their lives in defense of our country.
