The City of Fontana’s Military Banner Program is designed to support, recognize and express appreciation for individuals of the Fontana community who are bravely serving in the United States Armed Forces. Currently, we have over 100 banners proudly displayed on major thoroughfares within the City.
To be eligible for a banner, the following criteria must be met:
On active duty with any branch of the U.S. Military Services, and
A current resident, or

Military banners are installed on a first-come, first-serve basis at available locations in the designated areas, but can still be requested through the online form. Banners are limited to certain areas due to windy conditions.
