Active Military Banners


The Moorhead Military Banner Recognition program was established to honor current military personnel (including active National Guard members) who reside in Clay County or those military members who have an immediate family member* living in Clay County.  Each street light banner will have the name, branch and photo of the serviceperson. *Immediate family members are considered wife, husband, son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, son-in-law or daughter-in-law.

Clay County residents with family members currently serving in the military may honor their loved one’s service to our Country with a recognition banner proudly displayed along Main Ave, between Veterans Memorial Bridge and 11 St S.

The 2020 Active Military Banners have been installed!  You can still request a banner by submitting the information below.

Family members, friends and others can purchase a recognition banner by submitting the following:  

  • Address of the military service member or immediate family member.

  • Proof of active duty status (exp: copy of front of active duty ID card).

  • Quality photo of serviceperson in uniform – 300 dpi minimum.

  • $100 for the banner cost (payment will be due following application approval or paid with donations received towards military banners as funds are available).
