Resolved: Part 4 of 4
Series: New Year's Resolutions to care for the American Flag: Part 4 of 4.
Well, we have closed the books on January, 2014. Many of us have hung on with tremendous tenacity to our New Year's Resolutions, and if that includes you, take confidence knowing that getting through this first month is statistically the toughest challenge. . . So here's to a successful remainder of the year, and to whatever new changes you've committed to!
We hope our mini-series of flag resolutions has helped to keep you motivated and feeling accomplished. That said, here is the fourth and final offering in our series of New Year's resolutions. . .
Honor Old Glory
It goes without saying that we all want our flags to last as long as possible — that's a given. The desire for long-lasting flags is also part of the reason why Liberty Flags offers only American-made American flags. The quality and durability of American made flags is simply the best available.
In addition to the craftsmanship, the lifespan of a flag is also determined, in part, by the circumstances that surround it. Outdoor flags can sure take a healthy beating from wind and precipitation. But there is another factor in the longevity of a flag, and that is the care it is given.
Nonetheless, no matter how well they are taken care of, some flags ultimately reach a point when they simply must be retired. In this event, it is important that retiring your flag is done respectfully. Instructions for flag retirement can be found here.
So that is it. You have made it! We hope that these resolutions have kick-started your 2015. If you need to review the previous 3, they are available right here.
- Resolved: Part 1 of 4 -- Keep an eye on the weather
