Military Service Recognition
Military Banner Program
The Military Banner Program is designed to honor and recognize Yorba Linda Gold Star and active duty military personnel. Military banners are displayed on light poles along sections of Yorba Linda Boulevard beginning at Valley View Avenue and continuing east. Each banner will list the name of the honoree and the branch of the military in which the honoree serves.
The designated honoree must be currently serving as active duty in a full-time capacity in the United States Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, or Navy) and currently residing in Yorba Linda or have an immediate family member (parent, spouse, son, daughter, or grandparent) residing in Yorba Linda.
The banners are displayed May 2018 through mid-May 2019 for the 2018/2019 program. View the 2018/2019 Banner Map (PDF) for a map showing names and locations of the Military Banners currently displayed.
The 2019/2020 program is currently accepting applications through April 1, 2019. Banners will be displayed mid-May 2019 through mid-May 2020. The cost for purchasing a banner is $85.00.
