Retire Your American Flag in The Most Respectful, Dignified and Safest Way Possible

According to the United States Flag Code, Title 4, Section 8k states-
 
“The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

American Flags should be retired if they are –

  • Torn and tattered beyond repair
  • Sun-bleached or extremely faded

Many of today’s flags are composed of synthetic fibers.

These Fibers –

  • Burn at an accelerated rate
  • The flames can be difficult to control
  • Will emit noxious gases harmful to humans and local ecosystems

Donate your American Flag to Morris Family Services to ensure your flag will be –

  • Retired in a dignified and respectful manner
  • Safely disposed of in a controlled environment without the risk of harming others or local ecosystems
  • Dispatched by the preferred method in compliance to United States Flag Code, Title 4, Section 8k

Your flag will be retired in the most patriotic and repectful way possible. By being placed and cremated with a veteran who has bravely served our great nation.

All families and local businesses who retire their American Flag with Morris Family Services will receive an Official Flag Retirement Certificate and a Custom (pending) Commemorative Coin to honor and remember your act of patriotism and responsibility.
