Proper Disposal of the American Flag

American Flag

A flag bin is located in the lobby of the Northern Tier Library, where residents can deposit their worn flags for proper disposal. The collection began in 2003 as an Eagle Scout project and has continued as a collaborative effort between the Boy Scouts of America Troop 150 and American Legion Post 548.

On Veterans Day each year, the collected flags are taken to the American Legion where Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts participate in a ceremony and dispose of the flags by burning them in accordance to proper flag etiquette
