BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Residents can now properly dispose of old, tattered and torn flags at Broward County Government Center locations and other locations throughout the County.  Through a partnership between the National Association of Counties, the National Flag Foundation and the National Sheriff's Association, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners is proud to provide flag retirement boxes in the facilities listed below.

The American flag is a representation of our country, our people and the devotion we have to our nation. Not only does the American flag act as a symbol of our great nation's freedom, but it is a representation of our country's citizens and the history of this great nation. For those and many other reasons it is important to respect the flag.

"This program offers our residents a convenient and respectful way to dispose of their flags when they are no longer a fitting emblem of display," says Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca. "It is important to dispose of or retire a U.S. flag in a dignified manner."

Flags deposited in the boxes will be collected and disposed of properly and should be folded appropriately before being placed in the box. Only U.S. flags will be accepted. Visit our website for further information.
