Keep the flag looking its best!

If you fly your flag everyday, please make sure you have a light on it and watch for normal wear and tear and replace.

If your US flag is worn and torn and beyond repair, the flag should be destroyed in a dignified manner, preferably by burning with appropriate honors.

Most VFW or American Legion posts are happy to help with this service.

If you are a standing customer with us and in the Chicago area, you may drop your flag off at our office.
