The United States Code stipulates, "When the flag of our country has become worn or damaged and is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be destroyed in a dignified way." The proper way to dispose of our national emblem is through burning and burial. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Mary Popejoy/Released)
