Proper U.S. Flag Retirement & Upcoming Flag Day

As a courtesy, VSC headquarters accepts worn-out flags to dispose of in accordance with proper flag etiquette. Spring is a great time to inspect the state of your flag and remove from service if damaged, ripped, torn or frayed. The VSC coordinates several flag retirement ceremonies every year; please contact us if you’d like to volunteer for these services.

Remember Flag Day is Friday, June 14! It commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag in 1777 and the day now includes a ceremonial raising of the national flag, a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, the singing of our national anthem and more.

    Flag day is monday this year

  2. Janet Storey says:

    Good Morning,

    Does your organization still accept flags for disposal? Where I work we have several boxes that have accumulated. My local Legion says they can not accommodate the larger flags at their ceremony. If not you, can you suggest a place?

    Thank you,

    Janet Storey
