Flag Day, Retired Flag Disposal

NORTH CONWAY, NH – Today is flag day and local organization is looking to help Mt. Washington Valley residents dispose of flag properly.

American Legion Post #95 located on Kearsarge Road  in North Conway will be collecting old, worn, tattered and torn flags from 1:30-430 this afternoon. Steve Woodcock of Post 95 said that people don’t even have to leave their car, saying “just drive up and a veteran will happily accept your  used flag.”

The US Flag Code: states that if a flag is too worn it should be destroyed in a dignified way and that is what Post 95 is seeking to do.

As part of their Flag Day Celebrations the Post will be providing a small US Flag to all who of those that return their worn out flags.

Woodcock said that though this day is a special celebration anyone wishing to properly dispose of a flag throughout the year can just leave their warn flags on the post’s front porch.
