Tim,
The idea of a symbol for POW-MIAs was initiated in 1970 by Mary Hoff, an MIA wife and member of the National League of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia felt a need for a symbol for our POW-MIAs. Graphic artist Newt Heisley, a World War II veteran who flew missions in the Pacific, was assigned to the task just at the time his son, Jeffrey, returned home ill from Marine training at Quantico. Jeffrey’s gaunt appearance became the inspiration for the silhouette. Heisley wondered at the time how he would hold up if he had ever been captured and how easy it would be to forget those missing in action. The now familiar slogan, “You are not forgotten,” was born of that sentiment. The symbol has been altered many times. The colors have switched from black with white … to white with black … to gold with black … to red, white and blue. The importance lies not with the color changes but in the continued visibility of the symbol, a constant reminder of the plight of America’s POW-MIAs. The symbol is now used on patches, pins, decals, and flags.

Jim

According to Wikipedia, "There are red and white versions, which some say are to cover more recent military actions, but this is not official policy. There are black and red versions available as well."

Agreed

Thank you Jim - I regularly fly the POW/MIA under Old Glory at the house. I never did know this story or have seen POW/MIA flag in other colors.

Again - thank you.

Yes, the US flag always goes on top and the US flag should be larger or equal in size to your state and POW/MIA flag.

You my friend are "Spot-On"!

And since we are speaking flags, below link is a great place to learn flag etiquette:

USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - Flag Etiquette

Good info.........
