US Military Service Flags from the “The Flag of the United States, Your Flag and Mine" by Harrison Kerrick / Champlin Printing Co, 1925

 

1. A Blue Star - "Service in Army or Navy."
2. A Blue Star with a Gold Greek Cross in the Center - "Wounded in Service."
3. A Blue Star with a Gold Ring superimposed - "Decorated for Distinguished Service."
4. An inverted Blue Star with both the Gold Greek Cross and the Gold Ring (as in (2) and (3)) - "Missing."
5. An inverted Blue Star inside of a Red Ring - "Captured."
6. An inverted Blue Star superimposed over a Red Pentagon - "Wounded and Decorated for Distinguished Service."
7. A Gold Star bordered Blue with a Gold Ring superimposed on it - "Decorated for Distinguished Service," also seems to indicate the serviceman died, but that is not stated.
8. A Blue Star superimposed over a Red Pentagon with a Gold Greek Cross in the Center and a Gold Ring Superimposed on it - "Wounded, Decorated for Distinguished Service and Missing."
9. A Gold Star bordered Blue with a Laurel Wreath superimposed on it - "Died in Service. Laurel Wreath Optional."

 

"Gold represents wounds, distinguished service and death. Red, represents missing or captured. If desired, rank may be shown by the proper insignia of Officer or non-Commissioned Officer placed directly above the star. Service in the 'Zone of Advance' and foreign service may be symbolized by a gold chevron placed below the star, one shown for each six months of such service."

On February 8th, 1943, Nazis hung 17 year old Yugoslav Radić. When they asked her the names of her companions, she replied: "You will know them when they come to avenge me.” She was a Bosnian Serb member of the Yugoslav Partisans during World War II.
