"The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning". Title 36, Section 176 of the United States code.

The members of Pack, Troop, & Crew 13 retire flags at closing campfires throughout the year. If your flag is torn, soiled, or damaged, you can drop off your flag at the Oremus Center & request it be given to the Scouts. Your flag will receive a proper retirement at our next campout.
