Carson City Flag Retirement Ceremony

  • Date: 11/10/2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In August of 2016, three United States flag retirement bins were placed in Carson City by members of the Children of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the American Revolution under the C.A.R.’s state project Honoring Old Glory.

Since then, more than 2,000 unserviceable flags in need of retirement have been deposited into these bins by citizens of Carson City.

On Friday, November 10, at 3:00 p.m. Carson City will join members of the C.A.R. and the DAR in a community flag retirement ceremony to be held on the grounds of Fuji Park.

“We hope the community residents who have taken their time to ensure these flags are properly retired will join us as we pay our last respect to these flags and retire them through a pyre,” said Carson City Mayor Bob Crowell.

Carson City residents are reminded that flag retirement bins remain at the Carson City Library, City Hall and the Carson Flag Store.  Please use these flag retirement bins to ensure your American flag is properly retired.
