American Flag Retirement Ceremony

June 12, 2020 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

American Flag Retirement Ceremony

Event subject to change. Please call us at 252-728-5225 for questions.

It may come as a surprise to many that one of the proper methods of retiring your tattered or damaged flag is in fact-to burn it. After the flag is cut into pieces, we ceremoniously burn the pieces one by one, starting with the stripes and ending with the blue field. Honor Flag Day with us at this event. Held on the Beaufort Historic Site grounds. For more information call 252-728-5225 or visit the Beaufort Historic Site Welcome Center, 130 Turner Street.

Free – Bring your flag to retire the proper way!
