The United States of America Flag

The United States of America’s Flag is a sacred instrument. Everyone should show respect and honor for our Flag. The American Legion has brochures and books about the respect and honor for our American Flag.  Everyone, especially Auxiliary Members, should read and abide by the booklet entitled “Let’s Be Right on Flag Etiquette”.

The American Legion Auxiliary Headquarters recently received a question asking the following:
It has been stated that embroidered stars are cut from the American Flag and placed in a small bag a with a poem. The stars and poem are then sent to various veterans’ groups as well as those currently serving our country.

The American Legion National Americanism Commission DOES NOT subscribe to the practice of cutting the United States Flag into individual pieces prior to its proper disposal no matter what the reason or occasion may be. The Commission is of the opinion that when the flag is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be disposed in its entirely, preferable by burning. The flag began as a whole therefore, it is to be disposed of as a whole.  Contrary to what is found on some websites, The American Legion does not endorse the use of the flag in this manner.   The American Legion Auxiliary fully supports The American Legion’s position on this subject.

I feel the Department of Georgia will adhere to these rules and regulations. We are all very proud and will respect and honor the United States of American Flag.  Our veterans would be very unhappy with us if we did not abide with these rules.

For God and Country
