the Flag of the United States becomes faded, soiled, or torn, it should
be destroyed by burning. For individual citizens, this should be done discreetly
so the act of destruction is not perceived as a protest or desecration.

the flag properly.

HOW TO FOLD THE FLAG
traditional method of folding the flag is as follows:
|(A) Straighten out the flag to full length and fold lengthwise once.|
|(B) Fold it lengthwise
a second time to meet the open edge,
making sure that the union of stars on the blue field remains outward in full view.
(A large flag may have to be folded lengthwise a third time.)
|(C) A triangular fold is then started by bringing the striped corner of the folded edge to the open edge.|
|(D) The outer point is then turned inward, parallel with the open edge, to form a second triangle.|
|(E) The diagonal or
triangular folding is continued toward the blue union until the end is reached,
with only the blue showing and the form being that of a cocked (three-corner) hat.
