American Flag Replacement Criteria

Q

I have been noticing the tattered appearance of the American flag at
Foothills Lab. When is a decision made to replace the flag once it is worn?

Answered on February 08, 2008

A

Flags are replaced when they become visibly deteriorated. The flag you
mention is being replaced almost as this response is being written. The
flag in question somehow slipped through our normal inspection process.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
