Check out http://www.usscouts.org/gold/flagcode.html#176 It contains the U.S.
Code Title 36. Patriotic Societies and Observations Sections Pertaining to the U.S.
Flag As of March 1995. Specifically Sec. 176 (k) states, "(k) The flag, when it
is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be
destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
