When a Flag has been soiled, tarnished or has become tattered through years of use it is respectfully destroyed by burning.

Pieces of the Flags to be retired were handed out to be placed them in the fire by those in attendance.

In the final step a single scout places the field of blue and stars into the fire and the Scouts and Leaders salute.
