Worn Out Philippine Flag Disposal Ceremony


Our Philippine flag is our symbol of national identity, our integrity and a remembrance of our independence. With this, it should be given respect at all times even if it is already worn out.


Last June 10, 2011 the Worn Out Philippine Flag Disposal Ceremony was held at the GSCPO grounds.



Members of the Gensan Police Department and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from different schools in General Santos.



City Mayor Hon. Darlene Magnolia R. Antonino-Custodio with Col. Cedrick Train lit the firelay in front of the flagpole.



Hon. Eduardo D. Leyson IV solemnly burned the worn out Philippine flag with Hon. Dominador Lagare III.

Congratulations to the organizer and the local officials and the PNP in giving a better respect in decommissioning a worn out Philippine flag.
The act of reverence to our national symbol is very commendable, looking forward meeting the people behind this wonderful exercise of Nation's great gratitude to our heroes and gallant soldiers and police protecting the constitution and our beloved freedom...

i have a question.. Why is it that the boyscouts have only the authority regarding the burning of the philippine flag?

Anonymous said...

I wonder...where do they put the ashes after burning it? do they still have to respect the ashes of the burnt flag or just simply throw it away?

Are there any tributes? Like any leader will say something before the Burning Ceremony? The history of the worn-out flag perhaps? Any activity before the Burning Ceremony?

It is very informative activity. Can you also help us in disposing our old and worn out Flags?

May we invite the boy scouts troops when we have disposal of old and worn out Philippine Flags? Who is In-Charge from them.

We had a ceremony like this when I was in High School in 1999. The ashes were buried near the flag pole and we were told to not to step over it to show our respect.
