Flag Burning Ceremony

Cut worn flag into five strips.  Roll each strip up separately, place in bag of other contained.  Unroll each strip over flame while speaking.

Speaker #1:  a nation's flag is a stirring sight as it flies in the wind. Red is for hardiness and courage.

Speaker #2:  white is for purity and innocence.  A country's flag can stir people to joy, to courage, and to sacrifice.

Speaker #3:  blue is for vigilance and justice.  Many men and women have died to protect their nation's flags from dishonor and disgrace.

Speaker #4:  the Stars and Stripes stand for the land, the people, the government, and the ideals of the United States, no matter when or where it is displayed.  Every citizen should know how to honor his nation's flag.

Let flag burn to ashes.  Put out fire.  Ashes are buried.  Everyone leaves site quietly.
