DO YOU KNOW: Proper Disposal of Old American Flags?
When you take out your flag on Flag Day, you might find that it’s become torn and tattered. However, there’s no need to fret on how to dispose of it! Here is the most crucial thing you need to know: You should not throw your flag in the garbage.
Flags should always be treated with respect and honor because they represent those who worked, fought and sacrificed their lives for our rights and freedoms. They also represent all of us; the hard-working people who make this country something to be proud of.
Congress amended the Flag Code in 1976 to include the statement that the U.S. flag is a living entity and, as such, has all the rights, including the right to exist and expire with dignity.
According to the U.S. Flag Code, “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
During November, you can drop off your old flag at Town Hall, 2735 S. Hwy 69, for proper disposal. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
