Proper US Flag Disposal

When staging our front porch, I replaced our US flag.  This was the 4th US flag that I have replaced in the past 7 years.  The flags tend to fade over time, so it is necessary to swap them out.  When packing up to move, I found that I had a stack of US flags to dispose.

I would have disposed of them earlier, but I did not know the official process until today.  I found the step by step process for the proper US Flag disposal at Wiki How.  I was surprised that the right thing to do was burning the flags.  It was hard to set them on fire, and even more difficult to watch them burn!  (I purposely did not take any photos, because it just did not feel right.)

I am relieved to have completed the task, but feel a bit saddened by the event.  If I have to dispose of another US flag in the future, I would definitely seek out an organization as suggested by the Wiki How article.

    I just found your blog through Cozy Little House and her “welcome wagon friday” edition.
    I’m not sure how I got to this post…but I liked it.
    I had the pleasure of attending an official US Flag burning ceremony a couple of years ago. I have two nephews who are now Eagle Scouts and they invited me to attend.
    It was very dignified.
    I believe you can turn your flags into the Local Boy Scouts or the VFW. Our VFW has post boxes around the area for drop off. They ask that you place it in a brown paper sack before deposit.

    great post.

      Welcome to The Sweet Spot Pat! I would definitely drop my flags off at the Boy Scouts or VFW next time. It seems like this is a task for the ‘experts.’
