The United States Flag Code tells us all we need to know about proper flag care and display.
“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 a flag is tattered or faded, it is no longer fit for display and should be retired. A local Boy Scout Troop or VFW may be willing to accept your flag, or you can mail it to us. This service is free. We do accept donations to help defray our costs. Many patriots include a $1 or $5 bill with their flag, and for that we are always grateful!.
Our mailing address is:

Flag Keepers was started by Sergeant Major John Doty, USMC Retired. The Sergeant Major was dedicated to the proper care and retirement of the United States flag and was deeply patriotic throughout his life.
