Members of the Brattleboro Elks Lodge burn old American flags on Flag Day, June 14. According to the United States Code, the preferred way to dispose of an American flag is to burn it, typically with a full ceremony involving folding the flag beforehand and accompanied by the National Anthem or Pledge of Allegiance.
