The colors of the US Flag have important meaning and the colors symbolize our spiritual heritage.
According to the Flag Code, any American flag that is worn, damaged or tattered beyond repair should be retired in a respectful and dignified manner.
The most important factor is showing respect to the flag during its disposal. The preferred method is burning.
Members of the VFW Post 6196 and Auxiliary dispose of 2 years of worn flags.
