Palatine Township Programs

Blue Star Banner

Launched at the Township in June of 2011, the Blue Star Banner Program provides an opportunity to show community support to the family members of those currently serving on Active Duty in U.S. Armed Forces (including the National Guard and Reserves.)

The Blue Star Banner is to be displayed in the window of an authorized family member to let the community know that someone in the home is proudly serving our country.

The authorized family member (recipient) is invited to a Township Board Meeting and they are presented with the Blue Star Banner and a special Resolution. The recipient’s Mayor/Village President is present and participates in the Blue Star Banner presentation.
