No. 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.

I don't want to burn a synthetic flag as it pollutes the air. How can I properly and respectfully dispose of a tattered synthetic flag.

Stars for our Troops takes retired flags, respectfully removing the cantons with embroidered Stars, cutting around each Star in the shape of a pentagon and placing in a 2" x 3" pouch with a note. This Star is given to those that served and is sent to those currently serving. All is done respectfully, and the requests from those serving to receive a Star to know that they are not forgotten. The note states:"I am part of our American flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN." More information can be found at Stars For Our Troops
