“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.”
(The United States Flag Code)
At Consolidated, we believe the care and proper handling of the American flag is very important. When a flag becomes faded, torn, or otherwise unserviceable, there are certain guidelines that should be followed for disposal/retirement.
As a veteran owned company, Consolidated Towing coordinates with our local VFW posts for proper retirement of worn and faded flags. This service is free and we consider it a privilege to handle this for you.
Getting your flag to us:
- Drop it off at our facility M-F, 9 am-5 pm. (Directions)
- Mail to us: 1000 SE 9th St. Bend, OR 97702.
- Hand it to one of our drivers the next time we are providing service at your home or business.
