National Flag Day


National Flag Day

How did this day come to be?

June 14th is National Flag day. This day commemorates the day we adopted the flag we know and love today with 13 red and white stripes, and 50 stars set in a sea of blue. This day is believed to have been the idea of  a school teacher that had her students celebrate “Flag Birthday” on June 14th, 1885 to celebrate the flags 108th birthday. However, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an act of congress designating June 14th and National Flag Day.



Our flags meaning.

Our flag is not only a symbol for our country, but its very design contains memories from our past. Our flag has 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes that represent the 13 original colonies, and 50 white stars representing the 50 states the the Union.


Even the colors of the Flag are symbolic to what or Country and Flag stand for; the color red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue symbolizes justice, perseverance, and vigilance. When combined these aspects have become an international symbol of freedom and justice.

Why have we started this?

At Bin There Dump That Dumpster Rentals of Atlanta we have noticed an unsettling amount of American flags being improperly disposed of. As a Veteran owned business we find this to be particularly upsetting, and have decided to do something about it!  In honor of National Flag Day, Bin There Dump That has decided to help prevent our country's flag from entering landfills by partnering with The American Legion to properly retire our honorable flag. We are asking all of our customers to set their old flags in an easily accessible location for our Delivery Experts to grab. We will then ensure the old flags are respectfully retired. Per the US Flag Code, Title 4, Section 8(K): “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

Thank You.
