Forever May You Wave—What Happens to Our Worn American Flags?

Metropolitan Library System locations proudly fly the American flag. The display of flags at public buildings was established in the Federal Flag Code approved in 1942 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Flag Code governs the proper display, and when no longer in pristine condition, the proper disposal of the American flag.

The American Legion collects worn flags, and conducts the patriotic ceremony necessary to retire the living symbol with respect. This is typically done on Flag Day, which is June 14.
