Flag disposal

Is there anywhere on island to dispose of my torn up American Flag.  I can burn it, but would rather drop it off somewhere if possible.

 

Thanks,

I don’t know the answer to your question but thank you for having enough respect for our flag to dispose of it properly.  I did notice they don’t last too long on the island due to the winds.  We have a flagpole and I bought a new flag in December and it’s already starting to fray, and I bought the best quality flag I could find on line.

According to what I read about disposal of the American Flag - here's the most common answer.

American Flag Disposal. The United States Flag Code states: “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.”

Can you call the National Guard Armory?

I just have a bonfire, raise a toast of Cruzan Rum and put the flag into the fire.

But you have to stay off the beach and practice Social Distancing 🙂

I'll end up burning it as I have done before.  In my small town where I came from they had a drop box for flag disposal, was hoping for something similar here.  Thanks everyone.

Yes, American Legion is where I have taken mine over the years. I think they save them and burn them on Flag Day, June 14th. Hopefully this year they will be able to in June.
