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.”
