POW/MIA Flag Meaning and History
The POW/MIA was created in the 1970s in order to honor those in the military who had been taken as prisoners of war, as well as those who were still missing. The design features a silhouette of a prisoner of war alongside a guard tower and barbed wire. The flag also says “You Are Not Forgotten” underneath the photo of the POW.
National POW/MIA Recognition Day is the third Friday of September each year. It was established by President Jimmy Carter in 1979 and since then each U.S. President has commemorated the holiday. A ceremony is held each year at the Pentagon to honor those who were held captive and eventually returned, as well as those are still missing in action.
