Retire worn American flags locally

Retire worn American flags locally



State Rep. William A. Petit Jr. (R-22) and state Sen. Henri Martin (R-31) encourage residents to "Retire Your Worn American Flags" at two local drop off locations: Plainville Municipal Center, 1 Central Square; Plainville Public Library, 56 East Main St. Flags will be collected through Friday, June 11.

The U.S. Flag Code specifies that 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.

Contact Petit with questions: 800-842-1423, William.Petit@housegop.ct.gov.
