Like many things in life, an American flag will eventually reach the point where it needs to be retired. But with the flag’s powerful sentimental and symbolic value, the stars and stripes cannot simply be thrown away.
An American flag that will wave no more must be burned.
The national Flag Code says a flag, when it is in such a condition that it is not fitting for display, should "be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
