When we bought our home it came with a flag & pole. The flag was pretty beat up so Frank disposed of it properly by holding a private burning ceremony. Here is a little more information on disposal of the American flag:
The U.S. Flag Code states, "The flag, when it is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferable by burning." After your flag has been burned, the ashes should be buried. If you cannot burn and bury the flag yourself, then there are several organizations that will retire your flag in a proper and respectful ceremony. Among them are:
VFW @ vfw.org
American Legion @ legion.org
Boy Scouts of America @ scouting.org
Girl Scouts of America @ girlscouts.org
Marine Corps League @ mcleague.com
Contact one of the organizations above and they will be able to direct you to a local post, troop or location near you.
Though I didn't get picture of the disposal of our flag I did snap a few of the kids helping Frank put a new one up.
Holding the flag is serious business...I love how all three have the same expression.
This one's my favorite...
Admiring the stars and stripes....
Last but not least...this is the second card I created for the Papertrey round 5 swap.
Have a beautiful weekend! God Bless!
