    What should we do about disposal of those little flags that people put at gravesites on Memorial Day, Veterans Day, etc?

    Hello, and welcome to the USA-FLAG-SITE Forum!

    I would say that you should "retire" (dispose of) the little hand-held (or "parade", or "gravesite") Flags the same way you should retire the larger U.S. Flags: burn them in private in a dignified manner. You might even want to thank the Flags (large or small) for their service. I do.

    Hope this helps to answer your question!
