The flag of the United States is a living symbol of national heritage, noble deeds, splendid accomplishment, and untold sacrifices, which combined to establish the moral character of our country. It signifies a people dedicated to liberty, justice, and freedom for all. Public libraries throughout San Diego provide U.S. flag disposal boxes to allow residents to properly and conveniently dispose of worn, faded or tattered U.S. flags. The boxes are collected regularly by local Boy Scout troops and delivered to the American Legion or the US4Warriors Foundation for appropriate disposal in accordance with the United States Flag Code.
For more information about the flag disposal program, visit your local library today.
