A huge flag burning in Lake Havasu City Saturday. But don’t worry. It’s the Veterans of Foreign War Post 9401s annual American flag retirement ceremony.
The event begins at 9 a.m. and the public is invited to bring flags that need to be retired to the ceremony.
A VFW official tells the Today’s News-Herald that proper flag code states that worn or tattered flags should not be flown and the preferred retirement method is burning.
The Lake Havasu City VFW Post collects flags throughout the year to retire.
