2020 Flag Day

In honor the Flag Day, our Americanism Team has put together a brief overview of the #ALMBS Americanism Programs.

Though impressive and attractive, it isn’t the fabric, the cloth or even the colors that make the Flag of the United States special. It is the people who defend it and the nation that it represents which makes the American Flag the envy of the world. And long will she fly!

God Bless America and God Bless our Flag.

American Legion Flag Retirement Ceremony

How To Dispose of A Flag

  • The U.S. Flag Code suggests that when a flag has served its useful purpose, “it should be destroyed, preferably by burning.” For individual citizens, this should be done discreetly so the act of destruction is not perceived as a protest or desecration.
  • Many American Legion posts conduct disposal ceremonies of unserviceable flags, especially on Flag Day (June 14). Such ceremonies are particularly dignified and solemn occasions for the retirement of unserviceable flags.
  • Take your old flags to your local American Legion post.  They will be happy to retire your flags in their next disposal ceremony.
