Ensuring the respectful care of flags that should no longer be displayed

President Barack Obama has proclaimed June 14, 2014, as Flag Day and the week beginning June 8, 2014, as National Flag Week, urging all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by displaying the flag.

The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting symbol for
display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Welcome to oldwornflag.com. We provide an important and much needed service to the community through the respectful disposal of flags that should no longer be displayed.

Our mission at oldwornflag.com is to:

  • secure and remove flags on public display that are old and worn;
  • retire old and worn flags with the dignity and respect they deserve;
  • educate the public regarding proper flag etiquette.

If you are in possession of an old, worn flag, it would be our honor to properly retire it.
