Our Nation’s Flag Code (US Code Title 4 Chapter 1-The Flag) describes in complete detail how and when to fly the American flag and when and how to properly dispose of an unserviceable flag. All American flags, respectfully known as Old Glory, should be retired in a dignified and respectful manner when they are no longer a fitting emblem for display and replaced with a new flag.
The Flag Code serves to protect our flag and is a guideline for proper flag retirement.
