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.”  When we refer to burning, we are remembered that they are retired and respectfully consumed by fire
