Military Banner Program

In early 2018, the City of Dublin created a new street banner program to honor local veterans and active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

You can sponsor a banner honoring a service member who lives in Dublin or who has immediate family in Dublin.

The banners will be displayed along Dougherty Road between Memorial Day and Veterans Day (May – November 2018). At the end of the exhibition period, banners will be presented to the honoree (or applicant). Each custom banner will feature:
  • photo of the honoree
  • name 
  • rank
  • branch
  • if they are active duty or a veteran
