Fallen Hero Banners

The Fallen Hero Banner display was created in 2008. Twenty-two banners currently hang along North George Street in honor of our local fallen. Each banner posthumously recognizes servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers who qualify must have strong ties to the York community. The banners are made at the request of servicemen’s family members and are sponsored by local businesses. New banners are typically unveiled by the soldiers’ relatives during flag updating ceremonies.
