Since September 11, 2001, many homes and businesses are displaying the Flag on a daily basis. In some cases, for 24 hours a day. When the Flag is flown for 24 hours a day , illuminate it so that it is not in complete darkness.
Note: It is not necessary that there be a spotlight on the Flag. Light from street lamps and in the vicinity during darkness, provide enough illumination. so that the red and white stripes and the blue field visible.
Flags becoming worn or faded due to outdoor display should receive proper disposal. This can be accomplished by burning the Flag in a fire so that it is completely consumed. Post 10380 conducts flag retirements from time to time. (see Events Page) We will accept worn and faded Flags from the general public. Boy Scout troops also conduct flag retirements and accept flags from the public.
