(WBRC) - You're likely to see plenty of American flags flying every day, but when they fly too long, they may need to come down because of their condition.
Flag Day is a good time to remember the proper procedure for disposing of a flag.
The U.S. Flag code says any flag that is in poor condition should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
If you have a worn flag that you need to dispose of, you can follow the customary Ceremony of Final Tribute and Ceremonial Burning of the Flag guidelines. You can find those instructions here.
