    Contact the Girl Scouts concerning the disposal of your Nylon flag. They have a program that collects Nylon flags and takes them to a special incinerater.

    As to the magnetic flag: I'm not sure. Perhaps someone else on here can offer advice?

    Diesel should do it. Regular gasoline will just flash when lit. Just a few splashes of diesel should help it burn.
     
  5. rock dale no!!

    these flags give off toxic fumes when burnt - and if you burn enough of them the fumes will permenanty harm you!!
    shouldent use accelerants in fires its dangerous

    Wow! Recycling American flags. That's well cool. The official flag code should be adapted to include recycling of old or tarnished flags. Very 21st century, wouldn't you say?

    yep thats why i said gasoline. Just dont breathe the fumes in, and of course you can use diesel, thats how they light celebratery big bonfires, infact here in Britian some people get a propane cylinder, turn it on a crack, light it on the hose then jack it up, get a good 30 feet of flame. Theres no way itl go back into the cylinder as its pressurised, but dont try it because americans have a tendancy of making things go wrong and suing.
     
  10. ey now - brits are just as good at suing people as americans are!

    Besides just bury the flag or bin it, the environments more important and burning plastic isnt good for it

    Sorry to respectfully disagree "Tree-Hugger Rockdude" You possibly believe it is okay to use a flag to make a political statement as well. Save the Ozone with an invention to stop methane filled Cows from passing gas and you may really help the environment. The U.S. Flag is what my family members and military friends DIED to protect I don't recall such dedication to the environment.
