BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Bellingham Post of the American Legion is inviting people to celebrate Flag Day this Friday with a flag retirement ceremony.

The U.S. Flag Code states that when a flag is no longer fit for display, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

The flag retirement ceremony will be held at the post on 1688 West Bakerview Road near the airport on Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Food will be available.

People that have an old American flag they wish to retire can drop it off or bring it to the retirement ceremony.
