The POW-MIA Flag

The POW-MIA flag is a symbol of our nation’s commitment to discovering the fate, to the fullest extent possible, of American’s who are being held as prisoner, missing, or otherwise unaccounted for. U.S. Public Law 101-355, passed by the 101st Congress on August 10, 1990, designates the following days in which the POW-MIA flag is to be displayed:

- Armed Forces Day: Third Saturday in May.
- Memorial Day: Last Monday in May.
- Flag Day: June 14.
- Independence Day: July 4.
- National POW-MIA Recognition Day: Third Friday in September.
- Veterans Day: November 11.

When celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, be sure to display the POW-MIA flag to honor those still unaccounted for.
