Hometown Hero Banner Program

The Huntington Beach Hometown Heroes Banner Program honors the brave men of women of Huntington Beach currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. This is a joint effort between the City of Huntington Beach and American Legion Post 133. The personalized banners are displayed on light poles within the city to both celebrate and remind residents of their dedication to our country

In order for a service member to qualify, the service member must be an active member of the United States Armed Forces, and must be a resident of Huntington Beach, or have an immediate family member who resides in Huntington Beach (wife/husband, daughter/son, or granddaughter/grandson). Verification of qualification is required. Banners shall be displayed for a period of 12 months.  At the end of 12 months the sponsor will be notified that the banner will be retired, and the light pole will be available for a new service member. Banners will be returned to the sponsor upon retirement.  If you would like to continue to have a banner displayed after its retirement, space permitting, a new banner can be purchased.  The same qualifying requirements will apply.

Each banner costs a total of $160 for fabrication, hardware, and installation. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Please see the application brochure below for more details.

PLEASE NOTE:  WE CURRENTLY HAVE A WAITLIST FOR BANNERS.  Please contact us to have your service member added to the waitlist.

Please direct all questions to the City Manager's Office at 714-536-5202
