Flag Day Retirement Ceremony
Thursday, June 14, 2018
The City of Rancho Santa Margarita is proud to offer an opportunity for residents and guests of all ages to honor the American Flag with this observation and flag retirement ceremony, in partnership with American Legion Post 862 and many local Boy and Girl Scout units. Held outside the Bell Tower near Central Park, the ceremony is held to destroy properly – by burning – worn, damaged or otherwise unserviceable American Flags in a dignified manner in accordance with The United States Flag Code which reads: As a revered symbol of freedom and justice, the flag of the United States of America needs to be treated with the utmost respect. This respect extends to the flag's eventual retirement and destruction. Worn or unserviceable flags can be disposed of properly throughout the year in the flag box receptacle located in the lobby of the Bell Tower Regional Community Center.
