    Give it to the local Boy Scout troop so they can cut it into strips and burn it in a ceremony.

    The United States Flag Code (4 USC Sec 8 Para (k) Amended 7 July 1976) states: "The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning." Burning isn't the only way to dispose of a flag, though.Jun 14, 2019

    It's the only way I've ever heard of, however, the above does state there ia another way, but doesn't state what it is.

    I don't know that I could ever burn one though no matter how tattered.

    ... and we haven't seen this one yet, so we can't give any advice.

    Aquitaine Is What It IS! But NEVER BOARED!

    So, @Aron Klein, if you stand back to get a pic of the whole flag, plus the damage, we'll see what you're talking about...........
