U.S. Flag Protection And Education

The American Legion Legacy is the nation’s leading supporter of the constitutional amendment to protect the U.S. flag from desecration. Since a 5-4 Supreme Court decision in 1989 defined flag burning as free speech, The American Legion has advocated alongside members of the Congress, the Citizen Flag Alliance and the majority of the American people to return to the states the right to enact flag-protection laws. The Legion is also the nation’s foremost authority on the proper disposal of unserviceable U.S. flags. www.legion.org/flag
