Flag Burning

Flag burning done at Eustis Wurst Tag Festival. The American Legion shows the proper disposal of tattered and worn American flags.

At first I thought this was some sort of anti-American protest shot. I'm glad you explained it. Interesting shot.

Good demonstration. Also the old belief that if a flag touches the ground it must be burned is incorrect. It is disrespectful to lower it to the ground but only old or damaged flags that can't be cleaned or mended should be burned. I like that you captured this.
