Flag Day
We invite you to a night of honor for Hospital Responders, with Special Guest Speaker, Jeanier Tayler, the Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army! Jennie Taylor symbolizes everything the Freedom Festival is about and is her everyday example of Sacrifice to God, Family, and Country. We will highlight our youth, Children of the American Revolution, Provo Royalty performance, and will include entertainment, education, and personal sacrifices as each Flag is honored with a story as it rests its history to flames of dignity. We welcome ALL and encourage you to wear your scout uniforms representing your organizations. To honor America, her history and her traditions.

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.”
