CAPE CORAL, Fla. – A flag retirement box was installed outside of Cape Coral City Hall for residents to drop off their old American flags.
According to the United States flag code, flags should be burned when they are no longer fit to be flown.
Residents can drop off their flags in the box, located at 1015 Cultural Park Blvd, for proper retirement without having to leave their cars. Flags can also be taken to any fire station in Cape Coral.
The newly-opened Brotherhood of Heroes Resource Center and Military Museum, located at 4522 Del Prado Boulevard, and the American Legion will be collecting the flags to be burned.
