CITY OF CRYSTAL LAKE
BLUE STAR BANNER PROGRAM

The City of Crystal Lake & The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce have implemented a Blue Star Banner Program to honor and recognize City of Crystal Lake residents and City of Crystal Lake government employees who serve in the military and who are actively deployed.

This is a tremendous opportunity for us to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our service members. The men and women on active deployment sacrifice so much for our freedom that a program such as the “Blue Star Banner” is a great way to highlight the efforts of the real heroes of our City.

Banners will be displayed on Rt. 14 for a three- six month period and will be presented to the nominating party upon removal.

Pride in Our Military Men & Women

Blue Star Service Banners were widely used during both world wars, but were not embraced during the Korean or Vietnam wars with the same enthusiasm. The American Legion rekindled that spirit of pride in our military men and women following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by providing banners to military families across the nation.
