Officials said, "In 1909, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution established The Flag of the United States Committee to promoted a patriotic sense of respect for our flag. A national chairman was chosen and, working with other members of the Society, principle objectives were identified: to encourage citizens, businesses and others to fly the flag; to observe appropriate flag protocol as identified by U. S. Code Annotated; and to educate citizens regarding its correct usage.

"Today, NSDAR members across our nation and the world continue the mission of the Committee by volunteering in schools and conducting community workshops regarding protocol, including the proper disposal of U.S. flags."
