City of Temecula Military Banner Program

The Military Banner Program was created for the community of Temecula to honor and recognize active duty military personnel that reside in or have immediate family living in the City of Temecula.  Banners will display the official military photo of the service person, as well as their name, rank, and branch of the United States Armed Forces. There will be no cost to the honoree or the applicant for this program.


To qualify for the Military Banner Program, the following criteria must be met:
  • The honoree is an active duty member of the United States Armed Forces
  • The applicant must be a current resident of Temecula (priority is given to honorees that currently reside in the City)


Applications (download here, pdf) will be accepted on an on-going basis. Banners will be raised in the order that the application was received. Priority will be given to active military members that reside in the City of Temecula.

Applications must include an official military photo of the honoree, verification of military status, and proof of residency.  To verify active military status, please visit the Department of Defense website ( and submit a copy of the verification page with your application.  Applications can be emailed to or mailed to:

Banners will be located throughout Old Town Front Street and Civic Center Plaza. Banners will be installed periodically throughout the year, and will be displayed for a period of one year.  After one year, banners will be presented to the honoree (or applicant) at a future City Council meeting. If the honoree is still active in the Armed Forces at this time, the applicant may re-apply to the banner program.
