Flag Day
We will begin with a 15-minute pre- event of Veterans of Foreign Wars starting at 6:30pm honoring the Cold War Veterans with a “Utah Cold War Pinning Ceremony.” The American Legion will host the evenings events, joined in connection with The Daughters of the American Revolution, and featuring the Children of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This is an event you don't want to miss as you prepare for July 4th celebrations and “Proclaim Flag Day”. Refreshments provided by Macy’s Food and Drug at the end of the Ceremony. The event is FREE and open to the public. Life changed in 2020 opening a future of optimism for 2021 as we welcomed in the newest Branch of Service, the “Space Force.” As we display our “Branch Flags” and carry them in there will be a new addition added to the chartered protocol … Army, Marine, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and “Space Force” Branch Flags. The Space Force will be added for the first time as the newest edition to the Branch Flag Display.

Retiring Flags

According to the U.S. Flag Code, “the flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”  Note: Randy D. Edwards “When we refer to “burning” the flag, we replace burn to “retire.” “Retiring” dignifies and respectfully consumes the flag by fire” Therefore; we do not burn the Flag, respectfully we “Retire the Flag.”
