Fly the American Flag at Full-Staff


On Veterans Day we honor all people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Veterans Day should not be confused with Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died while serving our country.

Now is the time to check your flags to make sure they are in proper order.  Ensure that they are not ripped, faded or torn.  Also check to make sure they are flying properly.  If you are unsure of the rules, check the flag code under our Flag Rules tab.  If you have any questions about flag code or etiquette send us an email to: admin@flagkeepers.org.  


Finding a flag disposal service locally can be challenging. Sometimes, some of the following organizations provide an annual disposal ceremony:

· Veterans' service organizations (American Legion, VFW, Marine Corps League, D.A.V., etc).

· Boy Scouts. Girl Scouts.

If you have difficulty locating an organization locally that will dispose of your flags -send your flags to us.  We will ensure your no longer serviceable flags are properly disposed of at a patriotic flag retirement ceremony.

We proudly accept local government, municipal and state flags, as well as flags from friendly foreign governments. 

Packaging your flags: Flags 3'x5' and smaller can easily fit into a shipping envelope available from office/shipping supply stores and the Post Office. For larger flags, a used cardboard box of appropriate size is perfectly OK.

We are a not for profit organization.  Help us continue our work by donating today.  Thank you for your continued support.
