Flag Day is June 14!
For more than 200 years, the American flag has been the symbol of our nation’s strength and unity. It has been a source of pride and inspiration for millions of citizens, and we celebrate Flag Day on Wednesday, June 14.
Once an American flag becomes faded or torn, it is considered disrespectful to continue flying it. When a flag is ready to be retired, it is tradition in the United States to burn that flag. Flags ready for disposal may be dropped off year-round at the Douglas County Veterans Affairs Office located at 301 Wilcox Street in Castle Rock.
