American Flags

Many veterans groups hold flag retirement ceremonies on Flag Day to properly retire old and worn American flags.

When an American flag becomes soiled, faded and tattered, it should be destroyed, preferably by burning, according to the United States Flag Code.  Flags should not be disposed of in trash or recycling.

Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) directions for proper flag disposal include folding the flag in its customary manner, and placing it in a fire large enough to ensure complete burning of the flag.  Individuals can come to attention, salute the flag, recite the Pledge of Allegiance and have a brief period of silent reflection.  After the fire is completely consumed, the fire should be safely extinguished and ashes buried.

Nylon flags should not be burned, as they will produce toxic gases.  Please follow local fire codes and ordinances.

Most American Legion and VFW posts will accept worn flags from the public for retirement and disposal.  Some offer drop boxes, including:

VFW Post 1566
132 S Oakley St
Saginaw, MI

American Legion Post 212 bin
(in front of Ed Rehmann and Sons Clothing)
151 W Broad St
