Ceremony to Retire Old American Flags

Flag Burning Ceremony

Unserviceable American flags are being collected in preparation for the annual Flag Day ceremony to be held at the St. Mary’s County Governmental Center in Leonardtown.

US Flag code requires old, tattered, or worn-out flags to be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. For that reason, American Legion Post 221 will conduct the ceremony to dispose old flags during the Flag Day event at 6 pm Monday, June 14, 2021.

Deliver old flags for retirement to any senior activity center by 4 pm June 11:

  • Garvey Senior Activity Center, 23630 Hayden Farm Lane, Leonardtown
  • Loffler Senior Activity Center, 21905 Chancellor’s Run Road, Great Mills
  • Northern Senior Activity Center, 29655 Charlotte Hall Road, Charlotte Hall

For more information, call 301-475-4200, ext. 1050, or go to the St. Mary’s County Department of Aging & Human Services’ website.

Traditionally, during Flag Day celebrations, the St. Mary’s County commissioners and American Legion Post 221 co-host a respectful disposal of unserviceable flags.
